A great performance showing daily shows in Siem Reap. The NGO supported and operated circus is spectacular and a must during your stay in Siem Reap.

Phare was formed in 1994 by nine young men who had been in a refugee camp during the Khmer Rouge regime. The price of your ticket supports the performing arts school that has grown out of the enterprise and helps lifts youngsters from poverty. The show itself is dynamic - a combination of theatre, music and acrobatics. Traditional and modern Cambodian stories are told through the performances. The cast are superb and the show is fast-paced, funny and thoroughly good entertainment for all ages. Even if you wouldn't usually attend a circus, the chances are you would love this impressive show.

MUST GO! I love the circus, I have lost count of how many times I have been and they have a good range of performances now. It never ceases to amaze me how acrobatic they are, how determined and how funny – the performers have oodles of confidence and a cheeky personality that will appeal to the audience. Just love it.

You won't want to miss the highly sought after Phare - The Cambodian Circus (www.pharecambodiancircus.org). The hour of high-energy juggling, cartwheels, acrobatics, and contortions, all following a Cambodian storyline, will leave you wanting more. The show is accompanied by live music played on traditional instruments. This is a true celebration of Cambodian art and culture. Set up in 1994, Phare Ponleu Selpak is a testament to the resilience of the Cambodian people. Ticket price is USD 18 for adults and USD10 for children.

Absolutely amazing show of non-stop action; dance, acrobatics, juggling, music, theatre as more. Performers are Cambodian art students and tickets support non-profit art programs. Must go.

Bekannt als Kambodschas Alternative zu Cirque du Soleil kombiniert diese atemberaubende Performance Theater, Musik, Tanz, Akrobatik und moderne Zirkuskunst, um traditionelle Khmer-Volksmärchen mit einem modernen Touch zu erzählen. Tägliche Phare-Aufführungen finden im Zentrum von Siem Reap statt, sowie zwei bis drei Shows pro Woche in Battambang, je nach Saison.
