The Cambodia Circus & The Adelaide Festival Centre presented 'Phare Circus' as part of the OzAsia Festival playing at Ukiyo Tent, Elder Park from September 27th till October 2nd. Phare Circus is unlike any other circus in the world. Its not just aerobatics, it features singing, dancing and life-painting. Phare Circus is known for its edgy storytelling technique and the shows often portray things of meaning like war, domestic violence and poverty. The show at The Good Fortune Market is their lightest show and is fun for the whole family.
Phare the Cambodian Circus features graduates of the Phare Ponleu Selpak Circus School in Battambang, Cambodia. The show stars performers Choup Kanha, Nov Sreyleak, Chhoun Chandann, Heng Samnang, Nem Sothea, Kim Kakada, Khuon Kimlon and Pon Samol as well as Visual Artist Pen Robit and musicians Kheav Sothan and Touch Srey.
The show features incredible skipping routines and Tinikling, a dance that involves two people beating, tapping, and sliding bamboo poles while the dancer moves between the poles. Be prepared to see a man unicycle on a piece of wire, see a three man tower and some beautiful and traditional dance moves by two ladies in the show. Watch Pen Robit create amazing life-paintings right before your eyes that will be available to purchase after the show.
Don't miss your chance to see 'Phare Circus' in The Ukiyo Tent at Elder Park until October 2nd. A must see show, 5/5 Stars.
