Zip Zap and CPO presents ‘Journey Beyond’

After a breathtaking show in 2017 that left the audience wanting more, Zip Zap Circus and the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra (CPO) have decided to join forces once again to bring you ‘Journey Beyond’. Shows will take place on 17, 18 and 19 August 2018 at the Artscape Opera House. 

Zip Zap and CPO are back together pushing the boundaries to reach the peak of classical entertainment, along with artists defying gravity.

A group of circus dare devils will jump, fly and soar through the air. This will be followed by an array of deep and emotional performances effortlessly done at 8 meters high hanging from a piece of fabric. The beauty of these acts will be reinforced by the simplicity of the apparel and the crystal voice of Robyn Botha. This is what one can expect at Journey Beyond.

“It is a breathtaking production with world class circus acts in tandem with a world class orchestra,” says Dr. Marlene Le Roux, CEO, Artscape Theatre Centre.

The show will once again be under the direction of the charismatic Brandon Phillips, CPO’s resident conductor. “If I have one regret it is that I am facing the wrong way,” says Phillips.

CPO’s CEO Louis Heyneman reflects back on the magic of last year’s show, “Journeying with Zip Zap last year was exciting for everyone and we are delighted to be part of Journey Beyond”

“This deepens our community outreach and shows how the magic of music and the spectacle of the circus work so well together and create a world of wonder that helps you escape the harsh realities of a Cape Town winter,” adds Heyneman.

“You do not want to miss out on this spectacular event,” say Brent van Rensburg, Co-founder and Artistic Director at Zip Zap. “Journey Beyond will be a show that will once again amaze and delight the entire family,” he adds.
