Zip Zap Circus Schools
Zip Zap Circus is a not for profit social school that was founded in Cape Town in 1992, to inspire young people and help build a new culture of peaceful coexistence in South Africa. Working with a diverse community of children from all backgrounds, Zip Zap helps children to ‘dare to dream’ and learn to make those dreams a reality. Zip Zap’s programmes are all free to participants, with financial and material support coming from individuals, organisation, corporations and foundations. In South Africa and the world, Zip Zap is recognised across Governments, Ministries of Education, Tourism, Arts & Culture and private societies, as a major contributor to the development within the iconic ‘Mother City’ and providing sustainability of the circus arts in South Africa.
Capetonians and visitors to the mother city will be treated to a special performance by Zip Zap professional performers this December. “The CHANGES show will take you on a light hearted journey through the lives of these young performers” says Brent van Rensburg, co-founder and artistic director at Zip Zap.
This is demonstrated artistically with various circus techniques, such as acrobatics, juggling, aerial work, dance, music and costumes.
The opening scene leads from a heart-warming traditional song into an energetic, highly technical group scene. “Zip Zap’s top performing group will enthral audiences with a show that is filled with multi-talented artists expressing unity, family, fun and passion. This is a truly South African production that can be enjoyed by the whole family,” says Van Rensburg.
