Productions like Circus Abyssinia – Ethiopian Dreams, where everything can go wrong in a moment, its make for a completely riveting and hold-your-breath kind of show.
WITH gleaming energy and liberated movement at full throttle, the very appropriate tribal music descends. Talented brothers Bibi and Bichu have done a sensational job putting together an array of acts that the layman’s mind can barely fathom.
My personal tastes are partial to superhuman-like ability over sheer strength. Thus, I am inclined to say that the ladies outshone the men in their surreal demonstration. Although, somewhat shaky in tight and clean movement, they made up for it with showmanship and obvious dedication to their craft – which at the end of the day, is what really makes productions like Circus Abyssinia a worthwhile watch.
Circus Abyssinia – Ethiopian Dreams is at the Underbelly Festival Southbank till May 20.
