Ethiopia. Addis Ababa is the capital city and the name of a region of Ethiopia. Ingudai, 15 years old, is a member of the Circus Ethiopia. She wakes up early morning at home while her sister is sill sleeping in the same bed. A carpet with a representation of two couples of angels and Jesus Christ, and an orthodox cross are fixed on the wall. Circus Ethiopia was legally established in 1991 with a view to introduce circus art in Ethiopia. Ever since its creation Circus Ethiopia has given new dimension to  circus art in Ethiopia but as well internationally. By blending the art with the Ethiopian traditional costume, music and dance, Circus Ethiopia with its associative approach has inspired many circuses to grow throughout Ethiopia. © 1996  Didier Ruef
