WHITE GOLD (New Victory Theater) – Sunday, December 10, 2023 @ 12:00pm

 Registration is closed for this event

Nourish your soul and savor Cambodia’s artistic heritage with a circus that celebrates healing and joy… and rice, known throughout Southeast Asia as White Gold. Founded by refugees, Phare brings to the stage the special gifts of Cambodian culture, which nearly disappeared at the hands of the Khmer Rouge. Cheer hypnotic dance, mesmerizing music and dramatic live painting mixed with juggling, tumbling, teeterboard and other circus arts dating back twelve hundred years. It’s a transporting treasure for the whole family! For everyone 5 and up.

In 1994, two decades after the brutal Khmer Rouge abolished all forms of art in Cambodia, eight refugees established the Phare Performing Arts School. They launched Phare Circus in 2013 to support the school, and it has become a major tourist attraction in Siem Reap, Cambodia’s second largest city. Each month they present seven different shows, each of which tell the stories of this formerly war-torn nation through song, dance and acrobatics.
