Sbeik Thom (shadow puppetry) is an ancient and sacred form of Cambodian theater traditionally performed on ceremonial occasions. Performances of Sbeik Thom feature puppeteers and dancers manipulating large-scale leather shadow puppets against a lit screen while accompanied by a pinpeat ensemble. Once thought that the art form would become extinct, the Sbeik Thom performance is their New York City premiere.
