Flying Orb Productions was founded in 2005 by James Higgins and two principal dancers from the Angkor Dance Troupe, Monica Veth and Sophy Leng. Based in Lowell, Massachusetts, home to the 2nd largest Cambodian/American community in the country, Flying Orb's films and theater work deal with the legacy of America's war in Southeast Asia. From the beginning our motto has been “out of the darkness, into the light”. Performances are co-directed by Sophorl Ngin, Jim Higgins and Peter Veth.
