Circus Abyssinia: Ethiopian DreamsCircus Abyssinia, an African acrobatic spectacular from Ethiopia, makes its London premiere at the Underbelly Festival but if you saw Giffords Circus in London last summer, juggling brothers Bibi and Bichu and their troupe will be familiar old friends. Cal McCrystal, who works with Giffords and who directed Iolanthe performed by the English National Opera in spring 2018, has written Ethiopian Dreams, a tale inspired by the cast's childhood dreams of becoming circus performers. The cast of 14 makes the story come alive through synchronised acrobatics, juggling, contortion and dance, cloth spinning, Cyr Wheel, clowning and the astonishing eight strong double Chinese Pole act, as seen on ITV's Royal Variety Performance.

 

About Underbelly Festival

Each summer, from May to September, a Speigeltent (from the Dutch for 'mirror tent') is set up in the shadow of the Southbank Centre, to host the wierd and wonderful Udderbelly Festival circus and cabaret acts. Adjacent to the river Thames, the Speigeltent is part of a site which includes fairground rides, bars and a programme of international cabaret, music and fringe theatre.
