Circus Zambia (Zambia), 2015
Circus Zambia is a new organization born from Barefeet Theatre, a Zambian theatre company and NGO in Zambia. It was established in 2014 by four of the Barefeet acrobats. With a rich experience gained from tours, performances, training and workshops around the world, and most recently from a circus study year in China, those four young artists returned home feeling it was time to give something back to their community. Hence the creation of Circus Zambia. All the acrobats were born and raised in Chibolya. Chibolya is a township in Lusaka and is known to be one of the most disadvantaged areas in the city. At the Festival the Circus Zambia artists, who specialise in aerial acrobatics, juggling, hat juggling and acrobatic dance, hand balancing, fire breathing, banquine and cyr-wheel will present an awesome show.
