In 1994 a group of students from the from the Royal School of Fine Arts in Phnom Penh began to share their efforts in performing traditional Khmer arts, music and dance. In 1995 a performance space was acquired and has been a venue for shows and exhibitions ever since.

For this, it has organized hundreds of performances since its inception.
