First African Circus Arts Festival

In recent years, circus arts have been spreading rapidly all over the African continent. Young African performers have shown a remarkable aptitude to create a new African circus culture by fusing their rich artistic and cultural heritage with contemporary circus. In order to highlight the immense positive cultural, social and economic features of this art in Africa, Fekat Circus has undertaken to organize the First African Circus Arts Festival.

The Festival, scheduled to take place in Addis Ababa in November 2015, will bring together 50 young circus artists from Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Kenya, Madagascar, Senegal and South-Africa.
