One Man Show

Arega Tadesse, 29, a talented young street performer who lives near Egziabherab Church in Megenagna, Addis Abeba, executes his balancing act in Arat Kilo, in front of Menelik II School, on July 23, 2010. He is able to hold passersby spellbound for not only a few moments but often for several minutes as they form a crowd around him. By balancing three glass bottles with a ball on top through careful and controlled body movements, he has a unique way of earning a living for himself. Arega earns 50 Br to 200 Br per day from those who are amazed with his abilities and express their appreciation through tips. These earnings are based on his first three days performing in the streets, but he varies his act to keep people interested. Source ( Addis Fortune )
