Zip Zap’s MOYA Live travels to Johannesburg

Arts and Creative Industries

Cape Town-based Zip Zap Circus will soon be seen in Johannesburg, as they head to The Teatro at Montecasino with their show, MOYA Live.

After an amazing launch in Cape Town and fresh from the National Arts Festival, MOYA, the live show of the Zip Zap professional company, will travel to Johannesburg for a limited run at The Teatro at Montecasino from 4 to 7 August 2022, before the cast travels to Europe for a 3-month contract in France.

This contemporary circus show, rooted in South African culture, and seen through the eyes of our youth, is a celebration of both unity and diversity, through its unique and artistic interpretation. Prepare to be spellbound by daring aerial artists, juggling that will leave you wanting more, breath-taking aerial displays and an acrobatic wheel routine that will leave you spinning. Along with these traditional circus acts, MOYA brings South African art forms to the forefront. The gumboot dancing not only demonstrates the communion that this type of movement brings about but also highlights what Zip Zap Circus ultimately stands for: diversity, social cohesion, and empowerment through the circus arts.

The show will run from 4 to 7 August 2022. Bookings for the performances are now open and are available at Quicket, with ticket prices ranging from R190-R290. All COVID-19 protocols are strictly adhered to.

The show runs for 1h15 with no interval, and an age restriction of 6 years and younger applies.

The Teatro at Montecasino Performance Dates:
Thursday, 4th August – 20h00
Friday, 5th August – 20h00
Saturday, 6th August – 14h00 and 20h00
Sunday, 7th August – 11h00 and 14h00

MOYA Live is proudly supported by the National Arts Council, the Department of Sports, Arts & Culture, the Embassy of Switzerland, The Goethe-Institut, TotalEnergies Marketing South Africa, and the French Institute of South Africa (IFAS).
