Zip Zap Circus & The Parlotones
Seven years after their very successful first collaboration, “Art of Rock”, which left audiences screaming for more, Zip Zap and the Parlotones once again join forces to present a magical mix of aerial and acrobatic mastery set perfectly in sync with the band’s rock music. ‘25 LIVE: A night at the circus’ will take place in grand style at the Artscape Opera House on the evenings of 30, 31 August and 01 September 2017.
From the start, 2017 has been an action packed year for Zip Zap Circus School. Performers have had the incredible honour to perform in Reunion Island for the festival "Leu Tempo”, in Zurich, Switzerland at a charity tennis game between Roger Federer and Andy Murray, and in Paris co-founder Laurence Esteve was invited to join the judging panel of the prestigious Festival International du Cirque de Demain.
