Puppetry Workshops in Phnom Penh

The Kok Thlok Theatre, located on the grounds of Cambodia’s national library in Phnom Penh, is famous as the venue for hosting regular performances of traditional Cambodian shadow puppetry since its inception. The theatre’s proprietors have introduced a new initiative to bring the art of puppetry to the public through workshops.

Supervised by experienced Khmer puppet masters participants make their own puppet, learn more about the history of puppet play and gain insight into one of the oldest forms of Khmer performing art traditions dating back centuries. This is a novel way for visitors to explore Cambodia’s cultural heritage.
