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. Meskel Square (often transliterated as Masqual, Meskal or Mesqel) is a square in the city of Addis Ababa. It is often a site for public gathering or for demonstrations and festivals, notably, the Meskel Festival from which it takes its name. © 1996  Didier Ruef
