Round-up on the road – Phare on Tour in the US

We’re nearly half way through the first EVER American road trip for Phare artists…. and what an incredible month the team have been having!


So far the ‘Khmer Metal’ troupe has performed in Long Beach, Stockton and San Francisco at the Give2Asia fundraiser… they’ve done a great job at being ambassadors for the Cambodian arts by impressing audiences across the country.

Check out some of the media coverage we’ve had so far:

  • Long Beach Post – ‘The performance is nothing short of vibrant. With a cast of nine multi-talented characters, the package of acting, improvisation, live musical performance and dance is clever, charming and awe-inspiring.’
  • Voice Waves – ‘“Khmer Metal” explores these themes in a circus show mixing theater, acrobatics, and rock music, reflecting the stories of urban youth in modern Cambodia.’
  • SFGate – ‘There’s seduction and perhaps ill-advised athletic romance.’
  • Khmer Times – ‘We have received an outpouring of support from the Cambodian-Americans who have never seen a modern-day Cambodian circus.’
