Twenty years ago, 8 young Cambodian refugees returned home after living in exile. Their community was about 4 kilometers outside Battambang. There were many problems, and much of the local youth had social problems as they were farmers without land. These 8 youngsters had art training abroad, and so they started giving free painting lessons to other youngsters. The following year they widened this to include music, community theater and circus. In 2001, they had their first Cambodian tour, spreading an educational message on subjects such as land mines, HIV and malaria. This community spirit has spread and Phare still tours the country spreading its social message, even visiting prisons and other similar institutions.

Enjoy an evening under the bigtop in downtown Siem Reap with an evening show at Phare, the Cambodian Circus. Run by the NGO of the same name which supports the futures of Khmer youth with art and performance training, Phare is a lively show combining elements of high flying, tight-rope walking, juggling, contortion, music and theatre circus arts in one energetic showcase of Cambodian culture. Enjoy an evening of cultural discovery for a good cause, and pick up a few souvenirs on your way out.
