I attended a human circus show during a visit to Battambang in July 2015. The performers include both circus and music students at Phare Ponleu Selpak, and I was very impressed by the high quality of the performance. Not only is the story original and engaging, but the acrobats on display were top notch and the musical accompaniement was excellent... More

Absolutely recommend anyone in Battambang to go to the circus! It's all about art, music, dance, theatre, acrobatics, skill and fun! It was the highlight of my time in Battambang!

I don't like the arts much - sorry But this is amazing. I have now seen two different shows and they are brilliant. The fact that this 20 year old organization helps Khmer youth and children makes it even better I take groups and this is a fav

I took my 3 young children to this show and we all loved it. I really encourage everyone who visits Battambang to go, as not only is it an outstanding show, but it is supporting a fantastic cause! Tricks, fire, juggling, comedy, theatrics! It was a very funny, interesting, enjoyable and engaging show. We will definitely go to see it... More

I really enjoyed this show. Great performers keep you laughing ad amused during the whole show. One of the things I really liked was the music, which is played live by these young artists and is what makes the excitement possible. The cost was very high compared to other expenses in Cambodia, but for a different, fun night out I... More

We booked tickets to see the circus and took a tuk-tuk there. This was a fantastic show. The tickets aren't cheap by Cambodian standards, $14 per person, but if you want to be nice ask if your tuk-tuk driver can come in with you. They gladly let our driver watch the show with us for free - it was his... More

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed an entertaining and fun hour of acrobatics and skits. Fabulous to see such a large crowd of fellow like minded people supporting a home grown industry. A must see in BB especially as it in itself is a life changing experience for those it supports in so many diverse ways. Rock on Phare...Ken&Janine.

For only $14 this circus performance was definatly worth the money! What you have to remember is that this isn't a professional act they are disadvantaged children learning new skills! They are incredibly talented and they had me on the edge of my seat and heart racing as to what would happen next! Very impressive and so nice to know... More
