Circus Abyssinia: Ethiopian Dreams at the Adelaide Fringe
Circus Abyssinia celebrates Ethiopia’s extraordinary culture and weaves the dreams of its cast through stunning feats of acrobatic daring, dance and contortion.
Inspired by the story of real-life jugglers Bibi and Bichu, the show tells the tale of two young Ethiopian brothers who dreamed of the circus in a country without one. When their greatest wish is granted by the Man in the Moon, the two boys are joined on a magical journey by a host of high-flying figures – some enchanting, some joyful, others menacing and strange, but all of them circus ‘dreamers’, who together awaken an incredible new Ethiopian tradition.
This show explores Ethiopia’s rich artistic heritage and the traditions that set us apart, but at its heart is a celebration of the dreams and joys common to all cultures and continents, and which bring us together.
Full Price: $39.00 | Concession: $34.00 | Child: $29.00 | Family: $115.00 | BankSA Customer: $27.00
