Set Design for Community Theater

Name of the Theater :

Tos Merl Liger Travelling community theater

Tos Merl Mean Let’s watch 

In the exploration, we have a plan to create a moving mobile theater for the Cambodian community. I am happy to be a part of this exploration cause I can help people who are not able to watch TV cause after we create this moving mobile theater we will go and have a play for people who live there that don’t have TV access. I happy to see people in the rural area happy and smile. For the first few weeks, we were planning about how would our theater look like after that we would like to know how our theater doing to design like what are the things that we need in our theater where should we put the current and stuff like that. After we planning we have some group to design a prototype for our theater. Then we have 3 people who go and find some of the truck ideas for us to make the moving theater. When we finish the prototype and the price of the truck and we know that the price is really expensive so we decided to make a video for our crowdfunding to let people donate use money for us to buy the truck. the exploration, we also go to someplace to interview people in the rural area how did they feel about our moving mobile theater for our crowdfunding video. Also, we have made and plays and we perform there to let people live there to see and make them happy. So the place where we go is Tboung Khum and Kampong Cham.


For the first day, I go to Tboung Khum after I interview people my team finding the place in that village to perform a play so we have found it but after we finish setup there is a big rain and we take everything and put it under the house. 10 minute later the rain has stopped and the land is so wet and we think we can’t perform but we don’t give up we still want to perform and we come up with an idea, we will perform the plays inside the house. So then actor go to makeup and the rest are going set up the place to perform. I am an actor so I don’t see what have they done to set up the place to perform. When we perform we are so happy to see people and children smile, happy and laughing all together.

Before we plan to perform be think that there are not many people who will come to watch our plays, but then it more than what we think they’re so many children and old people who are come. The next day we go to Kampong Cham We try really hard to find the place to do the performance While we find the place to perform we also take some people from our team to do the interview about their feeling. We have faced lots of problems when we doing that. In the afternoon we still could not find the place to perform. After that, we come up with an idea that we will perform at Engtieng house after that we go and set up then some people go to invite people to come and watch our play. There are so many people who come then we are really to see people come. Then Friday we come back to our school. ( Detonation will make you success )

        In math class, we have done many things and I start this class from 2:00 to 3:00 PM after English Literacy. I have learned about Fraction, Prime number and more. On Friday sometime we spend half tome of the class doing work and another half we played some game about math and if we still have time we can play other game or work on the homework. From Monday to Thursday some time we do some work on khan academy. We also work in a group, sometimes we do on textbook and sometimes we do on the workbook. In this class, I think I speak a lot and Don’t know why also in this class I never get boring. My teacher always help me when I have a question about the work. For her I never afraid to ask. My teacher always has the extra work for me to do when finishing my work early.

This is some of the pictures that we have done in class:





Wow!! It was surprised for me to know that people think that women or girl and men or boy are not equal, they think women always weak not like a man or boy they are strong. What do you think women and men are equal or not? If you think not that ok, cause people always have different opinions. So now  I just want to explain to people about this you know what people said women are not strong, Fast to cry, girl should not go to school. When I hear this thing I almost cry but I’m not going to cry cause I want to show people that women or girl are strong. I don’t want people to say women or girl are weak again. If you think that women are not equal please I suggest you change your opinion. There is one of Khmer story called “Phnom Bros Phnom Srey”. This story talks about women who are smart and can build a bigger mountain than the men. If it only a prediction story it also shows that women are strong and smarter and men. And you know what? A lot of boys are not going to school they just go to the club or doing something bad that other people don’t like with their friends. In my school, we have many things that relate to Gender such as an exploration called Gender Equity, MUN (Model United Nations), Debate.

Two of those things I have join there are MUN and Debate. All of those I am doing it in Khmer. During Debate we try to talk something that Women and men are equal. MUN is talking about a solution that can help women to get an equality Gender. Also, I have learned about women who fight for education for the girl, Which is Malala, For me, Malala is really good for me cause she has lots of determination.
