A tale of two brothers told through death-defying tricks, stunning ensemble feats of human juggling, hoop-diving, Chinese pole, and contortion, performed to the irresistible beats of live Ethiopian song.

Circus Abyssinia is the first Ethiopian circus made by and for Ethiopian artists. Ethiopian Dreams thrills and inspires, celebrating the beauty and power of the imagination. It transcends our differences, and reminds us, wherever we’re going, whatever our hopes are, we all dream under the same moon.

This performance is open to all ages.
