Location : Phnom Penh
Apsaras dance and dinner shows in phnom penh, as well as Khmer performing arts in general, aren't as active as in Siem Reap. Even so, some of the performing arts schools in the city are open to the public during the day, allowing you the oppoturnity to observer dancers in training.
Among these is the must-see Sovannaphum Arts Association & Art Gallery. Started in 1994 by a group of students, cultural shows are staged every Friday and Saturday night from 7.30pm. These include shadow puppet theatre, classical Apsara dancing and folk and mask dances.
On sale at the gallery at the theatre are shadow puppets made from leather, musical instruments and more. You can find Sovannaphum Arts Association on the corner of Street 105 in Phnom Penh. Another fine theatre you can visit in Phnom Penh is the Chatomuk Theatre at Sisowath Quay.
