PHARE Circus – Siem Reap & Battambang, Cambodia

An astonishing immersion into Cambodian modern tales, Phare Circus is the only venue in Cambodia featuring a daily theatrical circus show of international standards. The performances are embodied by a new generation of talented artists trained by Phare Ponleu Selpak, a social organization in Battambang.

Phare Circus, is so much more than a conventional circus, with an emphasis on performance art and a subtle yet striking social message behind each production. Cambodia’s leading circus, theatre and performing arts organization Phare Ponleu Selpak opened its big top for nightly shows in 2013 and the results are a unique form of entertainment that should be considered unmissable when staying in Siem Reap.

Several generations of performers have graduated from Phare’s original Battambang campus and have gone on to perform in international shows around the world. Many of the performers have deeply moving personal stories of abuse and hardship, making their talents a triumph against the odds. An inspiring night out for adults and children alike, all proceeds are reinvested into Phare Ponleu Selpak activities.
