The Lakhaon Festival, put on by the Institut Francais and running for eight days starting this evening has something on at Chenla Theater every night, including lots of people wearing face masks for a French classic for the first three nights. Then it's the turn of performances by Cambodian directors including Friday's Preah Saing (7pm), which has been written by none other than Em Theay, that wonderful lady who has done so much to revive classical dance in Cambodia. Mekala Arts will perform and Thong Kim An, Em Theay's daughter, will direct. The festival closes next Saturday with an afternoon family show from the Phare Ponleu Selpak circus team. Don't forget that the Our City Festival is also taking place this week with numerous events.
