Brodal Serei, meaning “freestyle boxing” examines the personal history and lives of the Khmer boxer beyond the thrills and spills of the boxing ring in present-day Cambodia. Weaving dance, drama and storytelling, Emmanuèle Phuon’s latest work casts a spotlight on the mind and body of the Cambodian boxer, and the success and struggle of a cultural form where economy and sport are intertwined intricately.

Inspired by the life of Cambodian boxer Hem Saran, the work features audio recordings of personal stories told by the well-known fighter, juxtaposed with live traditional Khmer music and a hypnotic electronic score by Zai Tang (UK / Singapore). Dancers of Amrita Performing Arts’ embody the masculine and rugged energy of fighters, with choreography inspired by fight movements, physical regimes and the rituals of Khmer boxing.
