Kenyan Street Artist Joins Russian State Circus in Moscow
Felix Katan, a Kenyan street artist, has used his performing skills to become an acrobat with the Russian circus in Moscow.
Reuters reports Katan started out as a break dancer in Nairobi before being headhunted by the circus director.
Katan then moved to Russia and passed an exam, allowing him to join the Russian State Circus as a certified acrobat.
'In Kenya we have no circus. We have parks - there are international parks all over there, and we used to do a show in the park, in the hotels when we were young.' Katan told Reuters.
The acrobat has proved his worth to fellow circus members, regularly performing at a height of 15 meters.
He hopes to eventually return to Kenya to open the country's first national circus.
