Phare, The Cambodian Circus
16th July, 2013
Daily in Siem Reap at 7h30 pm.
An astonishing immersion into Cambodian Modernity. Phare, The Cambodian Circus is the only venue in Cambodia featuring a daily theatrical circus show of international standard.
Modern Cambodian tales are embodied by a new generation of talented artists trained in Battambang. The performances mix theatre, music, dance, acrobatics, juggling, aerial acts, fire or contortion with an explosion of virtuosity and sensitivity. During one hour, Phare performers transmit emotions and excitement, blowing away the audience by their integrity and power.
Set in the heart of Siem Reap City, Phare circus tent can comfortably accommodate 360 spectators and is specially designed to fulfill the acoustic needs of the live music performances. On site, spectators enjoy 3 course set meals before and after the show with prior reservation in our cozy Phare Cafe.
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.
Come and enjoy the show every day at 7:30 PM

You can also see the circus (which I have done twice) in Battambang. Days vary but they always perform on a Thursday. DOn't miss it - it is excellent entertainment (more cirque de soleil than clowning) and very uplifting to see the pride and pleasure these disadvantaged kids derive from it.
