Circus Workshops

Train with the stars of Phare circus.

Experience Siem Reap differently. Hang out with the Phare Circus performers as you learn some basic circus skills. Walk through the same warm up, practice and cool down they do before shows. Watch the performance afterwards with the same artists you engaged with that afternoon.


That’s right. You can take a workshop with the stars performing in our shows! Workshops require a group of 5 or more people and must be part of a workshop + show package; talk to your tour group, family, or hostel-mates and viola! Class assembled. The workshop price is $15 per person and must be purchased together with show tickets.

Workshops are also great opportunities for student groups travelling through town and work perfectly as a Class + Dinner + Show combination. Experiencing a show after having spent quality time learning from our artists creates a truly powerful and lasting impression. No matter how you travel, our workshops are the perfect antidote to temple and museum fatigue and will guarantee that your visit to Siem Reap will be exciting.

Classes cater to the ability of the participants and give you a variety of skills to experiment with. After a warm up, you’ll experiment with tumbling exercises, juggling, balance-building activities, and you can request instruction in an area of interest. The artists are incredibly patient (I would know, not having anything resembling these skills to begin with, they shard plenty of laughs with me!) and you get to connect with some truly amazing performers that are all trained right here in Cambodia. Avoid the crowds, experience the extraordinary and schedule a workshop. You’ll be sure to leave with a new trick up your sleeve!
