1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An American rendition uses integrated text, movement and extended vocal techniques to depict the story of an American citizen who is kidnapped, interrogated and tortured in a secret prison while we distract ourselves with TV realty shows. Using the remote control as a theatrical device, the company flips from reality (too hard to watch) to Reality Show (WAY more fun) as they offer up savage parodies of American Idol, Fear Factor, and America's Next Top Model, shows which feature humiliation that we find delicious."--Jane Comfort and Company website

Act II: In the Realm of the Sun, Preah Arun Tipadey rules with logic and order. Thornea brings Pamina Devi before her father. Preah Arun Tipadey explains that he had her abducted for her own good and to protect her from her mother's feminine influence. He asks Thornea to guard her. Thornea tries to seduce Pamina Devi. When rebuffed, he imprisons her with magic. Preah Chhapoun plays his flute and entrances the guards. Noreak enters and frees Pamina Devi. He then introduces her to Preah Chhapoun and they fall in love. Before they can flee, they are caught and brought before Preah Arun Tipadey. The King decides that the prince is worthy of his daughter. But in order to marry her, he must first undergo an initiation of silence. The guards take Preah Chhapoun and Noreak away. Sayon Reachny visits Pamina Devi in the night and instructs her to kill her father. Pamina Devi refuses. Pamina Devi runs to Preah Chhapoun for help, but he is too engaged in his initiation ritual to pay attention. She decides to leave him, transforming her mother's dagger from a symbol of betrayal into a symbol of her own strength. Realizing his error, Preah Chhapoun follows after Pamina Devi. Sayon Reachny and her devotees catch the two lovers and condemn them for failing to follow her orders. Preah Arun Tipadey enters with his devotees. The two armies engage in battle. Frustrated at being caught in other people's conflicts, Noreak strikes the Gong of Consciousness; the battle freezes and dissipates. Noreak, hopeless in his quest for love, frees his prized bird. The bird transforms into Nory, his soul mate. Finally, Pamina Devi and Preah Chhapoun, Noreak and Nory dance in circles. Each couple joins together as one. They zigzag into their future, determined to survive the difficult path of compromise and consideration ahead
