The ever-popular and beloved Zip Zap Circus is back with VOOMA! running this festive season from 7 to 17 December 2023. Aptly named, this fast-paced, action-filled circus show is set to deliver another high-octane spectacle that promises to leave audiences on the edge of their seats.
What is VOOMA! all about?
VOOMA! is a dynamic and engaging circus performance suitable for all ages. This family-friendly event in Cape Town features trapeze acts, acrobatics, unbelievable juggling, and hilarious comedy routines, all performed by an exceptional cast of ordinary kids capable of extraordinary feats. This circus family is bound to transport the audience into a world of wonder, joy, and adventure.
‘VOOMA! takes me back to my circus school years in the 70s. The energy, the comradery, the fun and the daring. Not all will become stars of the sawdust ring but the lessons learnt will last long after lessons from text books are forgotten,’ says Brent van Rensburg, Co-founder and Artistic Director at Zip Zap.
The cast of the VOOMA performance includes young performers from the advanced Zappers and Dare2Dream programs, along with their “older brothers and sisters” who recently returned from France after a triumphant 3-month tour with Zip Zap’s professional production, Rhapsodie. With 90 shows, 400,000 viewers, and national television coverage, this tour has propelled Zip Zap onto the world stage with incredible success.
Bring the kids, grandparents, aunts and uncles, and the whole family to this exhilarating, family-friendly show. Enjoy an entire performance of enticing thrills and spills that will leave you in awe and amazement whilst supporting our local communities and their children.
Cost: R125pp, book via Quicket
