I had the chance to be able to stay in Siem Reap for an extended period of time. Bambu Stage is one of the most vivid and wonderful memory I kept from that city. As soon as you step in, it feels like entering a parallel universe, a little Cambodian world outside of space and time.
It's the opposite of a tourist trap: the shows are heartfelt, both creative and grounded in tradition, made with the people.
If you come by Siem Reap, make sure you don't miss it !
The owner is a fascinating guy, too. He's very warm and welcoming and have had a crazy life before coming there. Have a chat with him if you get the chance !

This show was recommended as something to do in Siem Reap by the New York Times. It is done by a small group of young performers using string puppets . It is a great introduction to Khmer culture with a good dose of humor. Some of the young people are more confident than others in English but wonderful to see a team pull something like this off. I have never seen anything similar elsewhere in all my travels and would strongly recommend it as something to do in Siem Reap.

We had a wonderful time following a typical Cambodian village story told by the artistically carved shadow puppets and their skillful puppeteers.

I recently attended a very enjoyable performance of Forbidden Rhythms by Medha at Bambu Stage in Siem Reap. Several outdoor open-air performance areas are integrated into an intriguing venue, complete with a small bar and comfortable seating for drinks or food before or after a show. Bambu Stage is located in a lively part of the city, easily walkable from other activities and lodging. The organization promotes local artists and offers the opportunity to share traditions of Cambodian culture in a professional contemporary setting.

Seeing the performance of Forbidden Rhythms at Bambu Stage was one of the highlights of my trip to Siem Reap. Medha is an extremely talented and professional group of artists that shares elements of Cambodian culture and traditions - and the challenging of norms - through acting, music, and dance. I was completely engaged from start to finish. The venue is beautiful - and unique - with open-air stage and seating, as well as a common area to enjoy food or drinks before or after a show. The performance was a good length - just under an hour - and suitable for all ages. I highly recommend including Medha, Forbidden Rhythms, and Bambu Stage in your Siem Reap experience.

I was excited to see a traditional shadow puppet show and was a smidge apprehensive that it'll take some guessing on what the story was going to be about (either the performance was going to be silent and requires the audience to have prior knowledge of the tale or all in Khmer) but I was pleasantly surprised! The performers did the skit in Khme-nglish! (Yea just made that up...)

The venue has great ambiance and the owner welcomes you and gives a brief introduction to remind you to just pay closer attention and you'll be able to hear the performers' English lines and jokes! Talented young folks!

This was one of my very favorite activities in Cambodia. These women are SO talented, and their story is moving. The show is clever, funny, and heart-wrenching. I LOVE drumlines -- so this was right up my alley. I highly recommend this show!

The backdrop for both shows is truly magical.
I attended both shows because I couldn't decide which I might enjoy more.
I loved both shows - it was well worth seeing the two.

We bought the tickets as a last minute idea but wow I am so glad we did. We walked up to a beautiful establishment and was welcomed by the friendliest people. We were offered refreshments at the bar and got talking to one of the lovely owners who introduced us to Archie (beautiful friendly dog),rub his belly and you will have a friend for life. Then we were shown through to the performing area were we were lucky enough to have a front row seat. Don't want to give away too much about the performance but all I can say is wow, the intro was informative, the performers are so talented, the puppets amazing and the overall experience was phenomenal. I would recommend to anyone who is visiting Siem Reap to come and see this show. Get away from the touristy Angkor Wat and pub Street and enjoy a traditional Cambodian show with the warmest, friendliest welcome. A big Thank you to everyone there who made our experience fantastic.

A fascinating insight through photography into years of Cambodian history. The 45 minutes flew by which tells me how much I enjoyed the show, the input of the narrator & the musician.

The Bambu Stage gardens alone are a delight & the welcome is very warm. Enjoying a glass of wine from the bar before & after the show added to what was a special evening. We’ll be back to enjoy the other shows on offer!
