Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre 1 Powerhouse Road Casula NSW 2170
Enjoy a screening of the touching documentary Cirque du Cambodia followed by a Q&A with the film's director Joel Gershon and CEO of Phare Performing Social Enterprise Dara Huot.
Cirque du Cambodia follows the journey of two youths who live out every child's fantasy: to run away from home and join the circus. But not just any circus – they dream of taking the stage with Cirque du Soleil, the largest theatrical company in the world. Their home, a poor village in the ancient, faraway kingdom of Cambodia, makes their quest even more extraordinary. From humble beginnings with the Phare Circus school, can they become the first Cambodians to take the stage with the world-famous Cirque du Soleil?
Cirque du Cambodia will be available as part of the Sydney Festival's AT HOME digital program from 5 January 2024 to 31 March 2024.
This is a free event. Registration is required.
