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.
