    What to Expect
    Make your own way to the impressive theatre in the historical heart in Siem Reap and take your seat in the position selected at the time of booking. Hear an expectant hush descend over the audience as the curtains part to reveal a talented troupe of acrobats and dancers of Phare Ponleu Selpak (PPS); marvel at the sleek agility of the performers, all of who derive from unimaginably difficult situations, and feel the melodic pulsations of the music as the show launches into life.

    PPS—founded by eight young Cambodians who were once refugees—was created to preserve the culture and art of the Khmer people. The program serves to help reintegrate these children into society through theater and circus arts and provides social and educational programs.

    Watch a spectacle unravel before your eyes and enjoy a compelling combination of acrobatics, juggling, aerial arts, contortion, and dance. 

    Watch six different acts—Sokrias (Eclipse), Khmer Metal, Sokha, Preu (Chills), Putho, and Same Same but Different—for a greater understanding of Cambodian culture, history, and beliefs.

    Opt to sit in standard seats or select an upgrade to enjoy a prime position in the front center rows. You also receive a complimentary beverage and gift if the upgrade is selected.

    The Phare circus was an amazing hour and a bit of talented performers showcasing their skills gained from the PPS organisation. It's more than just a circus as these performers create and play their own music, set and visual art. The circus students were just part of the show

    I don't normally live the circus but this was very entertaining and the skills were impressive. The organisation is also admirable for promoting the importance of the arts for social inclusion.

    Phare was one of the highlights of a recent trip I took to Cambodia. The storytelling through dance, acrobatics, juggling, painting and more was completely captivating. The show was full of moments of humour and wonder. Highly recommended.

    Phare is a wonderfully unique experience. It is a modern circus, acrobatics, art and music show performed and created by local performers. It is a small tent atmosphere, tastefully choreographed and entertaining. The performance fees support an NGO that funds education in
