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 city. 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.
The 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 can purchase light meals and have a drink in the licensed restaurant.
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 8pm.
