Move-in

 

2018

Directed by Dereje Dange
With 6 performing artists


Move-in is a laborious, hopeful, and utopic journey of a migrant depicted across a turbulent landscape. Following trajectories through empty spaces, vast deserts and deep darkness, this show represents both the physical and emotional voyage of a traveller caught in-between two worlds. Acrobatics, teeterboard, cyr wheel, juggling and object manipulation are techniques used to develop movements of the artists on stage.

No enemy

 

2018

With 4 performing artists


This show is one that reminds us that we have no enemy in this world, that our differences can be solved with time – if we give each other a chance.

Er’tale

(Volcano in Afari Lanugage)

2016-2017

Directed by Dereje Dange
With 8 performing artists


Er’tale is an imaginary world full of stories where fantasy and reality are mixed. Like the eruption of a volcano, characters and emotions bring energy, light, and power to this interactive and dynamic show. Acrobats fly in the air, balancing in the heights, climbing, jumping, dancing, juggling with their hands and feet. The unexpected occurs in this show where all the acts are performed together and at the same time. The show has the fresh and strong style of African performers, with the singular character of Ethiopian circus, which opens a door to a new identity in the tradition of circus.

Be-on

2017

Directed by Dereje Dange and Clio Suzzani

With 4 performing artists

 

Be-on in Amharic means “if it were”, it is the desire for imagination and poetry. Be-on is a sound that comes from afar, bringing with it the fascination of travel and contagious joy. Like a flower that blooms on the asphalt, it brings surprise and vivacity in an extinct world. It is created and performed by people who with passion believe that, beyond the gray, there is a world suspended, made of great beauty. With circus arts interspersed with the rhythm of traditional dances, the protagonists of Be-on play with time and space, transforming every adversity into a creative dream. With their acrobatics they leave us waiting for the vision of “great beauty” that all, in our hearts, we want to see fulfilled.

THE ORIGIN

2015

Directed by Dereje Dange and Shimelis Getachew

With 22 performing artists and 5 musicians

 

 

Designed for the first African Circus Arts Festival, The Origin tackles the struggle and the infinite symbiosis between man and nature. A man alone in a desert sadly remembers how many trees and animals used to live in the area. While people continue to destroy the earth, he fights and finally succeeds to make a new generation that protects nature and recovers what has been lost.
