Playing with fire!

Last night we had the amazing opportunity to watch a circus performance. I felt this performance deserved its own entry as it was a truly fantastic spectacle.
The Phare Ponleu Selpak performance group is compiled by a variety of Cambodian youths who are given the opportunity to learn at the creative arts centre in Battambang. Many of the students are from underprivileged areas and it was truly spectacular to see the amazing talent displayed.
Their exuberant performance was breath taking as the performers jumped through fire, catapulted from scaffolds and told a story of overcoming and accepting diversity.
It is a performance we will never forget.
