We went to see the circus based on the recommendation of the hotel staff where we were staying. I'll openly admit I wasn't expecting too much, but the performance blew me away! This is a group of very talented kids, you really must do this whilst in battambang. The entry ticket goes towards the local school, plus two of the children have apparently been selected to study and become professionals in Canada. A wonderful performance, very entertaining.

We actually visited the circus in Siem Reap, but it was the Battambang Troupe. They were entertaining, extremely talented, and the acrobatics were extraordinary. Great story line as well. Add this to your "to do" list in Battambang.

The circus is performed by students attending this Arts school which also inludes other areas of study such as fine arts and music. Have you ever wished to be a kid again? Then go see these kids perform. Their enthusiasm and pure joy will make you feel like you were in kindergarten again. The acts are based on extreme talent and raw emotions. None of that special effects crap and gimmicktry. So if you want to believe that the world can be a better place, that the good guys defeat the bad guys, and that your dropped peanutbutter and jelly sandwich will fall on the bread side then do yourself a favour and go see these kids. And at the end of the show give them a generous donation because that's what you would have done when you were their age.

We arrived in BB today for two nights. We were advised to go to the Circus tonight so we did and it's been absolutely fabulous.
It's a small covered but outdoor circus, only small but more friendly. I'm glad we sat on the front row to get such a great view- there's probably only a dozen rows though, I just like a front row.
The action was non stop. The energy, camaraderie, enthusiasm, dancing was second to none. These young adults had such skills. Acrobatics, balancing, hoops, flames,comedy .... it has the lot. And they looked so happy :) Some have gone on to be trained in a Circus in Canada.
DON'T miss it, you'd be sorry!!!!
