Jon and I have this thing where every few months I will ask him if he wants to go on an adventure. He always says yes. This time we ended up near the World Trade Center at the Brookfield Place Winter Garden for a performance of Cambodian Shadow Puppetry.
The Shadow Puppet Troupe of Wat Bo performed for the first time in the United States as part of Season of Cambodia, a living arts festival happening through April and May of this year. Shadow puppetry is an ancient and sacred form of Cambodian theater that is traditionally performed on ceremonial occasions. We were lucky to witness a beautiful and moving performance.
This was the first time either of us had been to this venue. It is located in part of the city that we normally don't go to but it's a resource that I'm glad to have found. They have free performances throughout the year and we'll definitely be visiting again.
