Phare Circus is more than a conventional acrobatic circus. The artists create and perform stories based on their own life experiences. Drawing from recent history, folklore and modern society, the artists blend drama, dance, live music and circus arts to share a part of their lives with audiences.

The performers come from unimaginably difficult social and economic background. They discover and develop their skills at Phare Ponleu Selpak non-profit school. They are able to earn a good living and transform their lives at Phare Circus, breaking the cycle of poverty.

By attending a Phare Circus show, you enjoy Siem Reap's best live entertainment, financially support the school and provide opportunities for Cambodian artists.

A thoughtful and entertaining performance. Pre-show activities were also interesting. Overall, well worth a visit.
Brilliant evening

Great evening spent at the circus, which was recommended to us by someone who lives in Phnom Penh. Great food before the show and really reasonably priced. They support under privileged Cambodians and the show was excellent. Really engaging and amusing. Proper skills and acrobatics. Thoroughly enjoyable.
It was unique for me, so do you!
