Gravity-defying Trapeze, Acrobatics And Comedy

Inspired by 'The Greatest Showman', this local circus tells the story of how the traditional circus started

The show choreographer and creative director Christine Chapman is one of Zip Zap’s first-ever students and she has recently rejoined the organisation to teach and share her skills. 

The Greatest Little Circus Show was so popular in its first run in April 2019, that it’s back at the Zip Zap Circus School on Saturday and Sunday 24 and 25 August 2019.

WHAT TO EXPECT
It’s a fun, lighthearted, energetic production that shows off plenty of skills and choreography talent. Trapeze acts, acrobatics and comedy will have the whole family on the edge of their seats. You can expect everything from gravity-defying aerials to authentic African dancing that will keep your mouth and eyes wide open while dancing in your seat.

PHEW! I NEED A BREAK!
The nail-biting show is 90 minutes long including a refreshments interval. There will be soft drinks, tea, coffee, light snacks and Zip Zap merchandise available for purchase. 

AN INSPIRED SHOW
Talking about the inspiration for the show, Chapman says, “We all loved the movie, ‘The Greatest Showman’ and thought it would be fun to travel to the world of the old circus and live our legacy. The movie illustrates how the circus started and that we are all where we are today because of the traditional circus.”

DID YOU KNOW?
Since 1992, Zip Zap Circus school has been inspiring young people to make their dreams a reality through professional training in circus arts. Zip Zap’s programmes are all free to participants, with financial support from individuals, organisations, corporations and foundations. 

CHILDREN’S BOOK LAUNCH: I CAN FLY 
Zip Zap is launching a brand new children’s book which will be available for purchase at the event. 'I Can Fly' tells the true story of a circus that saves children's lives by teaching them about love, trust and home. It’s written by child psychologist Jana van Niekerk (AKA Dr Zizz) and illustrated by Ayanda Nombelwu, a multi-talented student at Zip Zap. The selling price has not yet been announced but proceeds will go towards funding Zip Zap programmes, all of which are free-of-charge to participants.
