March will see acrobat and juggler Amós become the first Mozambican to join the world’s largest circus, the Canada-based Cirque du Soleil. Amós will work as a technician, assembling the aerial hoops, acrobatic fabrics and trapeze.
Ressano Garcia-born Amós trained in acrobatics and juggling.at the Scuola di Cirko Vertigo but by inclination gravitated to working as a ‘rigger’, assembling the acrobatic hoops, trapezes and other paraphenalia
It was while living and working in Italy that Amos came to sign on with the world-renowned Cirque du Soleil, founded in 1984 by two street performers. However, this contract will not stop him dreaming of one day setting up Mozambique’s first circus school.
Thirty-two-year-old Amós, more officially known as Vasco Massinge, went to school in Maputo and Beira before heading to Switzerland and then to Italy. Apart from Italy, he has worked in Korea, Colombia, Tunisia and Germany.
