    Phare Circus works mainly with disadvantaged young people. They learn circus skills, theater performance, music and a range of visual arts. It combines local traditions with new creative and innovative genres. Daring athleticism is combined with stories that speak powerfully to Cambodia’s not-too-distant history; for example, escape from tyranny is depicted through tightrope walking. The dark subject of a young girl trying to deal with memories of atrocities is depicted by breathtaking acrobatics in which seemingly impossible goals are achieved. More than simply a circus, Phare is an amazing blend of traditional and modern theatre, music, dance, acrobatics, juggling and contortion beautifully choreographed and performed in a story about Cambodian lives and society. We combine this scintillating show with dinner at an equally evocative restaurant, the award-winning Nest, a quirky but stylish atmosphere serving excellent Fusion cuisine. Overnight in Siem Reap.
