Zip Zap’s professional corps MOYA, presents a contemporary take on the heritage and culture of South Africa in a theater show called MOYA, staying true to the award-winning film which was released in 2021. Stuck in the midst of lockdown Zip Zap’s first ever acrobatic art film was born, a movie rooted in South African culture, seen through the eyes of our youth.


Now in 2022, our troupe has the privilege of once again delighting audiences. This contemporary show is a celebration of what makes us different, what makes us one and the resilience to express this in a unique and artistic interpretation.


Staying true to the essence of Zip Zap, the professional troupe pushes creative boundaries and explores collective acrobatic work, African dance (including Gumboots and Pantsula), as well as traditional circus disciplines.


In a particularly moving extract of the show, the history of gumboot dancing, a traditional South African dance that was born in the gold mines at the height of the migrant labour system during Apartheid, is showcased. The dance is extremely physical and serves as a cathartic release, celebrating the body as an instrument. This piece is a strong demonstration of the communion that lies at the heart of gumboot dancing and what Zip Zap Circus ultimately stands for. It reflects the past, present and future of this multicultural cast & nation, which is observed through the beauty of art and movement to bring people together.


Expect a polished, thought-provoking voyage, masterly crafted to inspire contemplation, understand true story telling through movement, and to not only witness the journey, but become part of the journey.
