In July 2017, Live the Circus, a crowd funding campaign to bring the first circus tent to Ethiopia was launched. The dream to have a circus tent responds to the desire to involve more youth and previously unreachable audience into the power of circus. It also accomplishes Fekat’s need of an alternative space since Fekat’s current premises is at risk of being put for sale.
