Zip Zap and CPO: a symphonic Journey

The Zip Zap Circus and the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra (CPO) are bringing you the most breath-taking show in town.

Three shows will take place on 10, 11 and 12 November 2017 at the Artscape Opera House.  With spectacular choreography, dazzling trapeze displays, sensational aerial silks and wild jugglers all set to the full symphonic sound of South Africa’s oldest orchestra, the show is set to amaze and delight.

Journey will take you from the classics to the space age, and while the CPO plays works ranging from Wagner to Williams under the direction of the charismatic Brandon Phillips, the passionate performers of Zip Zap will spin, tumble and fly through the air.

“We are delighted with this collaboration,” says Brent van Rensburg, Zip Zap’s Co-founder and director of the show. “When the Cirque de la Symphonie came to town, Zip Zap presented the curtain-raiser and now we have developed our own spectacle. When one adds the technical opportunities of the Opera House at Artscape, the sky is the limit.”

Journey is also a fundraiser for the expansion of Zip Zap into new premises in Salt River. “This new space will allow more children to benefit from the circus school’s eight programmes. As a Non Profit Organisation, Zip Zap provides all lessons at no cost. The 1’500 children come from all walks of life and learn an array of life skills while improving their circus techniques. We are extremely grateful to the CPO and Artscape for giving their support and time to our goal of inspiring kids for life,” adds van Rensburg.
