A country faces it’s bitter past and steps into the future,
Jan 2020
The circus was brought to the country by an ex-pat to give children a skill and hope. Cambodia comes from a violent, evil place. These kind, gentle, almost serene people have not hidden it, but tell their stories and acknowledge the emotional, physical and economic devastation, particularly of their children. The circus provides training and hope to these children. Go to the circus. You will be enchanted with their acrobatics, enthralled with their stories, and delighted to be a part of making their dreams a reality. And it is great fun with some stand out talent.

Lovely small circus

This is the training circus for the "real stuff" in Siem Reap (as far as I understand) but they are great! The kids have so much fun and they are very talented. Amazing what these young folks can do. And above all you are supporting a good cause on top! It's also on a nice location on the outskirts of Battambang.

For just $14, you not only see a spectacular show, prefaced with a lovely traditional Khmer dance, but you support some of Cambodia's most vulnerable - children.
The skills these kids have is astounding. They look like they are having a blast.

If you ever needs proof that art can change lives…
Feb 2020
This is an amazing place and we saw a pretty spectacular show! This whole project is inspiring and worthy of your donation alone, but the show we saw was easily worth its price. It had everything that modern circus needs: an awesome live band, impressive stunts, a fun story (which, despite it being in the local language, we were still able to follow) with plenty funny moments (great physical comedy!), and an awesome energy to the show overall.
And yes, they are students, so once or twice they had to try something again, but that only makes it so much more fun when they do succeed and it makes it SO much more scary when they attempt the dangerous stuff.
We had a blast of an evening without compromise. I cannot recommend this enough!
