  • On a lighter note, we also visited the Cambodian circus. It was amazing. No badly treated animals on show here only the talents of very impressive acrobatics and musicians. The school which trains the performers, who come from difficult social backgrounds, was founded by survivors of the Khmer Rouge reign with the philosophy that art can heal. #Phare #SiemReap #Cambodia #Pharecircus

  • Yesterday Cambodia marked 40years since the evil Khmer Rouge took power of the country. Last night it was clear to see how life has changed for the better... we watched the famous 'Phare Circus', a unique and touching drama and acrobatic performance produced by 'Phare Ponleu Selpak Association'. In 1990 following the Peace Agreement most refugees effected by the Khmer Rouge returned home, a group of teenagers had a dream to bring back arts and culture to the community after the civil war so officially founded the non profit association in 1994 that was originally born in 1986 on a camp bordering Thailand. The team now work with vulnerable and less fortunate families through social support, arts and educational programs. #pharecircus #circus #phareponleuselpak #artsperformance #cambodiancircus #siemreap #cambodia #travelling
