Don’t miss – Changing the Story – Rwandan acrobats in Gozo
|Email item||Print item||
This Sunday, a group of Rwandan acrobats will be performing a high energy, entertaining show in Gozo – Changing the Story
Future Vision Acrobat (FVA) from Rwanda, was founded by Elysée Niyonsenga, who, along with the other members of the group are all survivors of the genocide.
Elysée is in Gozo and Malta, along with 4 other acrobats from his group – Future Vision Acrobat – to run a couple of Circus4Life workshops for vulnerable Maltese and migrant youth.
The acrobats will show during the performance how far people come from and how much they can achieve if they keep persevering for a better future, where people are able to have a good life and a chance to change the world for the better.
Don’t miss the opportunity to watch this unique performance taking place at St George’s Square in Victoria, this Sunday, the 23rd of September at 7.45pm. Entrance is free of charge.
Elysée worked his way out of extreme poverty by teaching himself acrobatics and then helping other children living on the streets do the same.
This resulted in getting them back into school and off the streets by providing them with safe housing and a family within the small acrobatic community he has formed in Gisenyi – northern Rwanda by the border with the Democratic Republic of Congo.
FVA raises funds from performances and organising circus schools to help fund their programmes.
