Uniquely Cambodian, Daringly Modern, Siem Reap's most unique, authentic, top rated evening entertainment.
More than just a circus, Phare performers use theater, music, dance and modern circus arts to tell uniquely Cambodian stories; historical, folk and modern. The young circus artists will astonish you with their energy, emotion, enthusiasm and talent. Modern Cambodian tales are embodied by a new generation of talented artists trained in Phare Ponleu Selpak Artistic and Social Center- Battambang. The performances mix theatre, music, dance, acrobatics, juggling, aerial acts, or contortion with an explosion of virtuosity and sensitivity and very strong Cambodian story and identiy. Our performers transmit emotions and excitement, blowing away the audience by their integrity and power. Phare artists are graduates from Phare Ponleu Selpak's vocational training center in Battambang.
Coming from vulnerable households they gained international recognition through their art practice. The Cambodian Circus is a tool to build the careers of Cambodian artists, to contribute in the reviving of the Cambodian art scenes and to sustain the artistic, educational and social programs of the association.
