PHARE CAMBODIAN CIRCUS
TRANSFORMING THE LIVES OF CAMBODIAN YOUTH

Phare Circus

Phare, The Cambodian Circus is one of Cambodia’s most innovative social enterprise models. Profits generated through ticket, refreshment, merchandise and private performance sales support the free education, professional arts training and social support programs of Phare Ponleu Selpak in Battambang.

Uniquely Cambodian, Daringly Modern, Phare shows are unlike any in the world: theater, dance, original live music and breathtaking circus arts are used to tell uniquely Cambodian stories.

Phare artists train at Phare Ponleu Selpak, a school in Battambang that provides free public education & arts training to children from disadvantaged backgrounds. Started by nine young Cambodian refugees returning home after the fall of the Khmer Rouge.


BON OM TOUK
WATER FESTIVAL (Included)

Tuesday November 11 – 12

In November Cambodia erupts into one of the biggest celebrations of the year with Bon Om Touk, otherwise known as the Cambodian Water Festival.

Cambodia Water Festival History

The annual festival marks the end of Cambodia’s monsoon season, which often coincides with the reversal of Cambodia’s Tonle Sap River and the resultant flooding of the Tonle Sap lake. Cambodia Water Festival has been celebrated in Cambodia since as early as the 13th century, and signifies a celebration of water as an invaluable, life-giving resource: when the lake floods, it becomes a significant source of fish, and the surrounding farmland benefits from an increased surplus of minerals from the lake. The annual three-day Water Festival competes with the Khmer New Year for being the most important holiday for Cambodians.

Cambodia Water Festival – Bon Om Touk is celebrated throughout Cambodia — though the size of the celebrations varies depending on location. A smaller Water Festival is held around Angkor Wat.

Bon Om Touk is a non-religious celebration. Several events — such as the boat races, which are said to celebrate a Khmer military victory in the 12th century — have cultural and historical precedent.
