Fusing astonishing stunts with enchanted adventure, Circus Abyssinia follows the journey of two little Ethiopian brothers whose dream of joining the circus becomes a joy-filled reality.

The boys are plunged into a world of daredevil wonders, where they encounter a host of other circus dreamers: dancing, contorting, gravity-defying figures, all weaving tales of their own.

Featuring the inimitable Abyssinia Troupe, this show is a fantastical retelling of how the cast dreamed of the circus in a country without one and came together to create a phenomenal new Ethiopian tradition.
