Zip Zap’s live shows for 2020 just released After this year of #20Plenty has rocked everyone’s world, Zip Zap is celebrating the resilience of our Rainbow Nation with some brand-new circus magic, and this time in picnic style! Pack your cushions, picnic blankets and low-lying chairs and book your spot at ‘A Circus Picnic’ at the Zip Zap Dome from 11 – 20 December 2020, with shows daily at 7pm. This heralds the first show since lockdown and the final show for the year, presented by South Africa’s favourite social circus.

A brand-new show launches professional performance troupe A Circus Picnic will also serve as the launch of Zip Zap’s professional performing company, MOYA I SPIRIT. This troupe comprises eight world-class performers all of whom are products of Zip Zap’s free vocational training programme and with years of international and local collective show time under their belts.

The homegrown production is an emotive coming-of-age tale of an adventurous and curious young boy, and his discovery of the circus. Through the magic of the big top he escapes a challenging reality and leaps into an enchanting parallel world of acrobatics and delight, taking the audience on a wonderous ride. A Circus Picnic showcases a proudly South-African, family-friendly blend of traditional and contemporary circus, infused with humour, dance and exhilarating circus aerials and acrobatics, all while conveying a meaningful, 'feel-good’ storyline.

A theatrical circus picnic experience
The Dome will be transformed into a theatrical picnic site, with plenty of space to allow for physical distancing, along with an easy digital COVID-19 health screening, all orchestrated by a charismatic Ringmaster.
