Info supplied by Zip Zap:

With almost fifty percent of their income derived from live shows, surviving a global pandemic has pushed both inventive as well as subsistence boundaries.  As a pivotal part of their evolution, Zip Zap Circus tell their next chapter through the launch of their first-ever acrobatic art film at the end of April.

Born from these tumultuous times is MOYA, an acrobatic art film rooted in South African culture as seen through the eyes of our youth.  MOYA is an artistic, bold and fresh project from their professional wing that hopes to ignite the uniquely South African ‘gees’ and pride in our Country, Province, City and in our rainbow people.  

We follow the protagonist who experiences living, breathing, laughing, and dancing through the technicolour and breathtaking landscapes and landmarks of Cape Town, discovering himself and his environment through the magic of circus.

“Circus teaches us not only physical dexterity, but also mental resilience.  Enduring a global pandemic has compelled us to pivot and to explore alternative ways of engaging our supporters, keeping our students and staff motivated and of course, staying afloat.”  Says CEO and co-founder Laurence Esteve.

Staying true to the essence of Zip Zap, 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 directed and choreographed by three young circus artists namely, Brin Schoellkopf, Samuel Renaud and Sabine van Rensburg, and is exquisitely captured through the lens of two videographers specializing in movement film, namely Brin Schoellkopf and Nic Good.

“This is a project that symbolizes the evolution of Zip Zap. An opportunity to tell the next chapter of their story without looking back – and share it with the world.” Adds movement filmmaker, professional circus artist and Zip Zap alumni, Sabine van Rensburg.
