Students at Epic Arts in Kampot rehearse for a performance this Friday.

DEAF and disabled students get the chance to shine centre stage at a special performance day at Epic Arts in Kampot this Friday, July 29.

Members of the public are invited to spend an afternoon of creativity and fun at the Epic Arts Centre, which trains disadvantaged young people in performance, music, arts and dance.

Two pieces are being rehearsed especially for the event – one called Monkey Hip Hop, which fuses elements of traditional Cambodian dance and the character of the Monkey King with contemporary hip hop. In addition, students from the Kampot Traditional Music School will be performing two traditional folk dances for your entertainment.

Dance and drama workshops will also be offered to those who wish to take part, along with refreshments cooked by the staff at the Epic Arts Café.

Epic Arts is a disability charity established in 2001 that works with children in the UK, Cambodia and China to teach them a range of skills in dance, drama, crafts, photography and story-telling.

Their work aims to change lives through creativity, allowing people with disabilities to begin to believe in themselves and their powers of artistic expression.

The afternoon fun begins on Friday, July 29 at 3pm at the Epic Arts Centre, Sovann Sakor, Kampot, tel 012 479 403.
