What’s on at Zip Zap Circus

Catch MOYA (5 shows only) before it heads to Joburg

Last updated: 26 June 2023 

After a successful three-month tour of France and Switzerland, Zip Zap's circus extravaganza (based on an award-winning film) is back with a twist. MOYA blends contemporary and traditional circus with the real-life stories of Zip Zap performers. The captivating show plays at Cape Town's Artscape Opera House from 3 to 6 August 2023 for five days only.

WATCH AN AWARD-WINNING CIRCUS

In 2020, Zip Zap created the acrobatic art film MOYA, which won three International Circus Awards. Following its cinematic triumph, it was transformed into a live show, which went on to sell out shows nationwide and have a successful tour abroad.

Now MOYA is back on home soil. Zip Zap has given the show a fresh twist, adding elements of comedy, mind-blowing acrobatics, captivating dance sequences, and an original score by Josh Hawks, (former bass player of Freshlyground) “to take the entire family on a journey not to be missed,” says co-founder and Artistic Director Brent van Rensburg.
