After a breathtaking show that left the audience wanting more last year, Zip Zap Circus and the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra (CPO) have decided to join forces once again to bring Journey Beyond to the stage.

The show will run from Friday 17 to Sunday 19 August at the Artscape Opera House.

Zip Zap and CPO are pushing the boundaries to reach the peak of classical entertainment, along with artists defying gravity.

A group of circus daredevils will jump, fly and soar through the air. This will be followed by an array of deep and emotional performances effortlessly done at eight metres high hanging from a piece of fabric. The beauty of these acts will be reinforced by the simplicity of the apparel and the crystal voice of Robyn Botha. This is what one can expect at Journey Beyond.

“It is a breathtaking production with world class circus acts in tandem with a world class orchestra,” says Artscape CEO Dr Marlene le Roux.

The show will once again be under the direction of the charismatic Brandon Phillips, CPO’s resident conductor.

“If I have one regret it is that I am facing the wrong way,” says Phillips.

CPO’s CEO Louis Heyneman reflects back on the magic of last year’s show: “Journeying with Zip Zap last year was exciting for everyone and we are delighted to be part of Journey Beyond. This deepens our community outreach and shows how the magic of music and the spectacle of the circus work so well together and create a world of wonder that helps you escape the harsh realities of a Cape Town winter.”

Brent van Rensburg, co-founder and artistic director of Zip Zap, says: “You do not want to miss out on this spectacular event.”

Heyneman adds: “Journey Beyond will be a show that will once again amaze and delight the entire family.”

The show will start at 19:30 on Friday, 15:00 and 19:30 on Saturday and 15:00 on Sunday at the Artscape Opera House.

V Tickets cost between R220 and R330 per person and are available via Computicket. VIP packages are also available directly from Zip Zap. Contact Tania on 063 513 6203 or info@zip-zap.co.za.
