The Ethiopian circus company wins over the public of Rototom Circus
When a spectacle comes together so smoothly such as in the case of the circus company Fekat Circus at Rototom Circus: teamwork is needed to maintain the equilibrium; all the pieces must fall into place; the switching of the gears should be seamless in making sure that the whole machine works to perfection. Throwing themselves one after another, coordination and teamwork come together as a whole. All showing that a job well done is fundamental to a perfect showing.
You could have witnessed acrobatics, equilibrium, juggling, dancing, aerial contortion, and there was even a spot for a clown. Fekat Circus not only leaves you gasping for air, but also puts a smile on your face or compels you to, inevitably, not stop clapping at each and every performance. If anything, Fekat Circus has taught us that teamwork and togetherness are fundamental in not losing the equilibrium, so that the spectacle turns out well. In addition, thanks to its social purpose, it shows us that in working together we are able to save ourselves. This is what Fekat Circus was trying to accomplish, it had a much greater purpose than just leaving a good impression on people when passing through Rototom Sunsplash during the #celebratingafrica edition. When it comes to the circus company their main concern is being able to carry out a social project with the circus as their tool for social transformation, accomplishing this through different fundraising campaigns. For this exact reason, the applause was twice as loud.
