    • Project

      The cultural industry in Laos is still modest and considered to be a niche market, Khao Niew is trying to diversify its products and leverage the uniqueness of the team to local and international awareness. The young team is still learning and looking for bigger engagement from various sectors for linkage and learning process. People with disabilities, who are discriminated and have limited support to unleash their hidden skill set and talents, is the key target group for this empowerment project.  KhaoNiew believes that art has no barrier and can collate with all people. Their  previous experience working with deaf people has confirmed this.

      KhaoNiew is a young innovative company working in various theatre activities: object theatre, stage theatre, shadow theatre and other theatre styles. The special feature of the group focuses on object theatre performance by using recycled materials and unique nonverbal performances. The non-use of speaking enables the group to work with artists from various backgrounds. In recent years, the group has worked extensively with disabled associations and youth, as well as continuing the long-term working relationships with artists abroad.

      This project is a continuation of the skillset training and performance carried out. It focuses on the existing deaf team for an in-depth technical training to increase the management skill of the Lao Association of the Deaf but also of other disabled people’s associations. The team is equipped with some needed materials, management skills and a new show for touring in Vientiane Capital and potentially abroad. This project is considered to be a big step for the deaf community to showcase their capacity, innovation and to pave their choice for the future.
