Zip Zap brings new life to the circus… No more dancing dogs, big tops and drum rolls. The energy, joy, skills and passion are contagious and will make you leave the theatre optimistic about the future, if not hanging from the chandelier or jumping off your couch!
After a successful collaboration with the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra in 2017, Zip Zap is pushing the boundaries even further for the audience’s pleasure. From Dvorak to Shirley Bassey, Vivaldi to Les Miserables. The Zip Zap cast is reaching new heights of classical entertainment, with artists painting with their bodies and defying gravity.
Zip Zap’s upcoming collaboration with CPO called ‘Journey Beyond’, is an extra-ordinary tale that accumulates feel-good stories from their beneficiaries.
Zip Zap is a social project that takes the innovative approach of using the circus arts to transform lives for over 26 years. Not only for the thousands of beneficiaries but also for the millions of audience members throughout the world. Zip Zap inspires kids to dream beyond their circumstances.
“Journey Beyond” is taking place on 17, 18 and 19 August 2018 at the Artscape Theatre Centre in Cape Town.

About the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra
The Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra is arguably the most versatile and active orchestra on the continent of Africa, contributing handsomely to Cape Town’s global status and appeal. Founded in 1914 as the Cape Town Municipal Orchestra, the CPO is financially and culturally sustainable, attracting some of the leading international artists of our time. A multi-functional orchestra, the CPO delivers a world-class orchestra service to all communities in the region, participating in festivals and concerts across all genres of music. Apart from regular symphony concerts presented in the historical century-old Cape Town City Hall, the CPO also performs with Cape Town Opera and Cape Town City Ballet, adding up to a staggering 140 performances per year. It has several award-winning recordings for various European labels to its name, and recently returned from a highly successful concert tour of the United States of America. The orchestra runs a vast outreach and community programme that includes two youth orchestras and grassroots training projects in various townships around Cape Town. Many of the young musicians it trains are beginning to take their place on the concert hall stage.
