I was glad to have the opportunity to visit Phare and his lovely people for photography in Siem Reap and Battambang. Phare, The Cambodian Circus has been created in February 2013 by Phare Performing Social Enterprise, a social business that aims to promote and create job opportunities for Cambodian artists. Phare, The Cambodian Circus offers students and graduates from Phare Ponleu Selpak arts schools a place to hone their skills and a place to earn a decent wage, that will take them out of poverty and give them self-respect and freedom. It is also an opportunity where they can improve their skills by performing in front of an audience. Today they not only perform in Cambodia but also around the world.
