A circus with dazzling feats of social change

Phare’s enthralling circus performances bring arts and empowerment into the lives of everyday Cambodians.


Phare The Cambodian Circus’ performances are not only original and deeply riveting to watch, they also support the social work of its parent non-profit Phare Ponleu Selpak and its education initiatives in Battambang. 

Amid COVID-19, Phare has been allowed to hold performances in a limited capacity. You can sponsor a Cambodian family to catch a performance, and help Phare keep the lights on on its social mission. Check Phare’s website for latest updates on operations.  

Any donation to Phare also helps bring the arts to underprivileged communities in Battambang, and develops livelihoods in theatre, graphic design and other visual arts. As the pandemic wears on, your donation can also help Phare continue to provide income and relief to its team and community.
