As an international presenting organization, our stages have welcomed artists from all corners of the globe, often bringing unforgettable stories packed into their suitcases and a litany of perspectives tucked away in their passports. See You Yesterday is one of these international works that brought a sense of humanity beyond our conceptions. Produced by Global Arts Corp, a troupe of remarkable young circus performers from Cambodia utilize their extraordinary physical skills, including acrobatics and circus arts, to travel back in time and shatter a legacy of silence.
Originally part of our 18/19 season, See You Yesterday is a show engrained deeply in the fabric of ArtsEmerson, embodying our vision of art as a catalyst for change. We are absolutely thrilled See You Yesterday is part of the Together Apart series, available to stream from May 11-25, 2020. We hope you are just as moved as we are and continue to be.

See You Yesterday is a lesson on strength of the human spirit, turning pain into indescribable beauty through circus. We encourage you to learn more by revisiting our past blog content, including meeting the cast and understanding their history with a brief lesson on the Khmer Rouge. Be sure to come back to the blog often as we deepen these conversations.
