An unashamedly joyful mix of astonishing stunts and enchanted adventure, Circus Abyssinia: Ethiopian Dreams follows the journey of two little Ethiopian brothers, whose dream of joining the circus is whisked into 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.
Featuring the inimitable Konjowoch Troupe, with dialogue written by Cal McCrystal, the show is a surreal retelling of how the cast dreamed of the circus in a country without one and came together to create a phenomenal new Ethiopian tradition.
Packed with mischief, hilarity and breathtaking circus skills to delight all ages.
