Zip Zap Circus

Zip Zap is dedicated to supporting and conducting training in circus arts and performance as a powerful tool for social transformation, youth empowerment, team building and community uplifting.

Zip Zap Circus was founded in Cape Town in 1992 to inspire young people and help build a new culture of peaceful co-existence in South Africa. Working with a diverse community of children from all backgrounds, Zip Zap helps kids ‘dare to dream’ and learn to make those dreams a reality.
 
All of Zip Zap’s programmes are offered free of charge to its participants. Both nationally and internationally, Zip Zap is recognized across governments, ministries of education, tourism, arts & culture and private societies as a major contributor to the development within the iconic ‘Mother City’ and a provider of sustainability of the circus arts in South Africa.

Zip Zap is dedicated to supporting and conducting training in circus arts and performance as a powerful tool for social transformation, youth empowerment, team building and community uplifting. The programmes provide opportunities for young South Africans from very different backgrounds to play, learn and live together using the medium of circus training and performance to model and demonstrate the possibility of true coexistence.
