Zip ZapCircus School

Zip Zap Circus is a social circus 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 kids 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, organization, corporations and foundations. In South Africa and the world, Zip Zap is recognized 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.

    Boreal - A Stratospheric Circus Collaboration

    Canada, a land of vast wilderness. Here, extreme climate, wild nature and dramatic landscapes are of magnitude that makes humans humble. Inspired by the various textures of the north, acrobats lead us through powerful ocean tempests, vast tundra, sumptuous forests and extensive plains. Becoming one with the snowstorms and golden leaves of the fall, we take a journey that sweeps from the East to the West of the Canadian land and dives to the center of the sensorial experience of its Boreal!
