This imaginative 35-minute production, entices the audience into a sneak-peek of ‘circus’ life, both behind-the-scenes and on stage, through the lens of an inquisitive and mischievous character, called Trompie. He invites the viewers to explore a wondrous circus world, bringing you aesthetic artistic creations as well as breath-taking action shots, capturing the grace, strength and skill of our circus performers. Once Upon a Circus also symbolises greater values and meaning, as it unveils that our little circus in the heart of Cape Town, is in fact, a microcosm of a true ‘Rainbow Nation’ South Africa. The story reveals the possibility of social transformation and youth empowerment through the circus arts. Trompie, a real member of our circus family, also represents the array of youth whose lives have been transformed through their discovery of our circus magic. This production is therefore based on the true and touching stories of the many kids who have walked through Zip Zap’s doors, daring to dream beyond their circumstances, and who, consequently form part of this colourful circus family.
