We are building a circus training space with a guesthouse to Cambodia in the fall with my Cambodian wife. It will be in Kampot 150 kilometers away from the capital Phnom Penh in a very beautiful location between the sea and the mountains. We have already bought the land for the project and if everything goes as it should we will start building in October 2013. We aim to finish the first buildings and have the space operational by January 2014.
The idea is to offer the local street kids and others interested a place to start a hobby that will possibly even lead to a career some day. I myself am a professional circus artist and I also have a degree of circus teacher (Turku Arts Academy). I have been teaching juggling in Cambodia at Phare Ponleu Selpak (a cambodian NGO based circus school) and at Epic Arts (NGO for the disabled in Cambodia) and I speak khmer language. Our project will be done in co-operation with these two NGOs to share knowledge and resources. The guesthouse will be there for visiting teachers and artists who would be willing to share their knowledge with the youth and inspire them.
