Take part in this event that includes a variety of foods for purchase, as well as entertainment, curated artistic installations on display in the theater lobby,  and good fun. Immediately following, a Pre-Concert Talk that includes the amazing creative team of KHMERASPORA will inspire audiences and give true meaning and context to the spirit of the evening.

Written and directed by the world-renowned Cambodian American rapper, praCh, KHMERASPORA is a musical performance that tells the Cambodian American experience.
