organisation in the country, a group of 6 artists, still in their young age decided to venture out by themselves in search of better conditions to nurture and grow their love for circus. Fekat Circus traces its beginning to this moment – when young creatives from underprivileged background commit to their ambitions in circus arts. They first obtained support from an international NGO based in Addis. While rehearsing in the space provided by the NGO, the founders of Fekat circus decided to involve and impart their skills to other youngsters from the neighbourhood. The Fekat circus informal school came about by opening its doors to the surrounding community.
