We were looking forward to seeing the circus in Battambang, and it lived up to expectations. It was amazing to see the talent on the stage - dancing, acrobatics, theatre, and athleticism. It a must-see for anyone coming to Battambang.

Performed by young people from the art and performance school who come from difficult backgrounds, this was a wonderful evening. The acrobatics were not only skilful, but full of energy and excitement, with lively music and a simple story.

It's not Ringling Bros., but be amazed of their tricks. It is a story telling by quite brilliant artists with a eco and political twist. We were there with a 5 and 8 year old. They loved it.

These young people deliver a great performance. Even if none of us understands the language they told a great story and gave a really good performance. The whole family just loved all the way. I would recommend everyone to go.
