Our special friends at Zip Zap Social Circus who have been using the medium of circus artistry to empower youth-at-risk, often saving lives – successfully for the past 29 years – have created something new, fresh, cutting-edge, bold, and contemporary.  Unable to run any of their 9 programmes, nor perform in front of an audience, they decided to keep busy and keep creating.

Wherever you are in the world you can have access to this spectacular virtual screening of their new short film which will aid in raising some much needed funding.

This is Zip Zap reinvented.  This is Zip Zap as never seen before.  The next chapter. 

With the global pandemic halting the live performance industry, Zip Zap Social Circus finds itself at a pivotal moment in its existence.

When what you do and love is suspended, the softer skills taught through circus, such as grit, perseverance, and creative thinking, become vital tools for survival.  Through adversity, creativity is born.

These unforeseen hurdles have had a catalytic influence over Zip Zap’s artistic direction and presented an opportunity to create something fresh, cutting-edge, bold, and contemporary.  A project that hopes re-ignite the proudly South African ‘gees’ and pride in our Country, Province, City and in our rainbow people.  A project that symbolises the evolution of Zip Zap. An opportunity to tell the next chapter of their story without looking back – and share it with the world.

Born from these tumultuous times is MOYA, an acrobatic art film rooted in South African culture as seen through the eyes of our youth. We follow the protagonist who experiences living, breathing, laughing, and dancing through the technicolour natural landscapes of Cape Town, discovering himself and his environment through the magic of circus.

Staying true to the essence of Zip Zap and enhancing the natural evolution of the company, the professional wing pushes creative boundaries and explores collective acrobatic work, African dance (including Gumboots and Pantsula), as well as traditional circus disciplines.

MOYA is captured through the lens of two young, talented circus artists and videographers specializing in movement film.

The virtual screening of this short film will be available on Quicket to view on-demand   Over 48 hours, from 00h00 on Saturday 24 April 2021 to 23h59 on Sunday 25 April 2021 – UTC +2. SAST
