Tini Tinou: Soaring to the top of the tent

Ahead of the opening night of the 10th annual Tini Tinou circus festival, Canadian trampolinist Travis Johnson yesterday gave a group of Cambodian performers a master-class in elastic-assisted bouncing, tumbling and twirling.

“These kids are some of the most talented I've had in quite some time,” Johnson beamed.

The 12-day circus festival will see performers from six countries host workshops and put on performances in Phnom Penh, Siem Reap and Battambang. Organisers hope the festival will strengthen the circus arts here through collaborations such as these.

“We’re very happy to exchange skills,” said Vong Vannak, a trainer at the National Circus School of Cambodia and longtime organiser.
