At Tuol Sleng (S-21), you will need to pay the entrance fee if you are a foreigner visiting the museum during the opening hours. After 5.20pm, you can enter by telling the guards that you are coming for the free admission performance.

3) Is there any provided transportation between performance venues?
No arranged transportation between venues. It would be an experience to travel to the next performance venue by yourselves. Thanks for following us.

4) Can I see only one part at one venue?
Yes, of course. Join us at any of the venues you can. However, we encourage you to plan the evening to see all the 3 parts at all three venues. It would be a great site specific performance experience.

5) Parking?
Please see answer to Question 1. The parking fee (or tip) at each venue is usually 1000 rile (USD 0.25) for a motorbike or bike. If you are driving a car, plan to arrive early at each of the venues and the parking fee or tip can be a bit higher.

6) Can I take photos and video?
Yes, you can. No flash photography allowed. However, for the courtesy of the artists and other audience members, we ask you to be respectful. It would be unpleasant for others if you go into the middle of the performance area and take photo or video. Do not lose the opportunity of experiencing the site specific performance because you are too busy taking photo and video.

7) Is there a dress code for the performance?
You can dress whatever convenient for you to sit down on the ground or stand to watch the performance at these public spaces. One of the venues, Tuol Sleng (S-21) is a genocide museum, so it is hoped that visitors have some sense of respect and dress appropriately.
