Be Enthralled by Two Brothers’ Fruition of Dreams!

See a show with infectious energy that “delves into the rhythms and roots of Ethiopia’s rich musical and artistic traditions to weave its story through death-defying tricks, and feats of juggling, clowning and contortion, all performed to the irresistible beats of Ethiopian song.”

Circus Abyssinia: Ethopian Dreams is playing at The New Victory Theatre (209 W 42nd Street) until December 30th and it’s the first Ethiopian circus made by and for Ethiopian artists.

Created by two brothers, Bibi and Bichu, who yearned to be circus performers:

“The story at the heart of the show is a mix of autobiography and dream, and tells how we came to be jugglers – not from our adult perspective, but how as children we dreamed it.”

If you’re at Waterside, just take the M34 Select Bus right from here!
