An unashamedly joyful mix of astonishing stunts and enchanted adventure; Circus Abyssinia follows the journey of two little Ethiopian brothers, whose dream of joining the circus is brought to life by the Man in the Moon. Plunged into a world of daredevil wonders, the boys encounter a host of other circus dreamers: dancing, contorting, gravity-defying figures, all weaving tales of their own.
Starring Bibi, Bichu and the inimitable Konjowoch Troupe, this is a surrealist retelling of how the cast dreamed of the circus in a country without one, coming together to create one of the world's very first Ethiopian circuses. This show includes audience participation.
