Entry Description

Fekat Circus, which in Amharic means “blossoming circus”, was born in 2004 in the outskirts of Addis Ababa out of the initiative of a group of young Ethiopians united by a deep and unique relationship of brotherhood and positive values. They had grown up in a suburb of Addis Ababa and had had the good fortune to be familiarized with circus from a very young age. They shared a common dream: to create a circus with  youngsters who had never imagined to be on a stage in their life. We believe circus arts are a powerful tool to spread joy and positive values in this world afflicted with suffering and individualism. This is why Fekat Circus wants to widely spread circus arts, reach as many children and youngsters as possible, and give an opportunity to blossom to thousands of them.
