Reasmey Angkor Troupe
An interview with friends of the Reasmey Angkor troupe.
How long do they expect to need IPAT’s help?
This is the hardest question to answer. IPAT’s help has been so vital. Although independence is being worked towards,
the environment and the economic difficulties of survival make this difficult to even hazard a guess.
Help will be needed for some time to come.
What are they doing themselves to create income and keep the group together and working?
The company charges for admission (25 cents for adults, all children free), seeks special commissions for
performances such as festivals and private celebrations, expands the touring circuits
where navigating landmines is viable, involves schools and educational locations,
and looks for work in the paddy fields during the monsoon season.
