MOYA is Zip Zap’s Award winning professional performance company.

These performers have all spent years honing their circus techniques and skills, whilst working their way up the various levels of Zip Zap’s programme offerings.

MOYA is a colourful celebration of South Africa’s cultural diversity.

It is the tangible spirit and energy of Africa that lives in its people. It is the golden thread that connects a tapestry of cultures.

This uniquely South African production is a manifestation of Nelson Mandela’s dream of a Rainbow Nation. A metaphor he used to share his dream that all South Africa’s people, a nation with 11 official languages and a troubled past, could co-exist in harmony. 

For many, a career in professional circus arts is one that must be found in Europe, America and the surrounds.

MOYA was created to give local talent a South African circus ring in which to not only stretch their talents and pursue their dreams but also to create shows that celebrate the land we call home.

The troupe is made up of Zip Zap Circus graduates who have come together with international directors and creators to create MOYA An Acrobatic Art Film as well as MOYA LIVE
