Circus Picnic - 13 December, 7pm

Sun Dec 13, 19:00 - Sun Dec 13, 21:00
Zip Zap Circus School Dome

After the year of #20Plenty rocked our worlds, we’re celebrating the resilience of our Rainbow Nation with some brand-new circus magic, and this time in picnic style! Pack your cushions, low-lying chairs and comfy blankets and join us for A Circus Picnic at the Zip Zap Dome from 11 – 20 December 2020, with shows daily at 7pm (doors open at 5:30pm). Our first and last public show of an unprecedented year.

A Circus Picnic will also serve as the launch of Zip Zap’s professional performing company, MOYA I SPIRIT. This troupe comprises eight world-class performers all of whom are products of Zip Zap’s free vocational training programme and with years of international and local collective show time under their belts.  

This homegrown production is an emotive coming-of-age tale of an adventurous and curious young boy, and his discovery of the circus. Through the magic of the big top he learns to believe in himself, trust others and follow his dreams. He escapes a challenging reality and leaps into an enchanting parallel world of acrobatics and exhilaration, taking the audience on a wonderous ride.

MOYA I SPIRIT showcases a proudly South-African, family-friendly blend of traditional and contemporary circus, infused with humour, dance and specialist circus antics, all while conveying a meaningful, 'feel-good’ storyline. 

The Dome will be transformed into a theatrical picnic site, with plenty of space to allow for physical distancing, a quick & easy COVID-19 health screening, all orchestrated by our charismatic Ringmaster. Picnic spaces will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

You can buy your delicious picnic feast from Dish Food & Social right now too. Browse the menu tabs above that offer – Gluten-free, Vegan and Standard options for both adults and children.  To keep everyone safe and in accordance with COVID-19 regulations, each picnic box caters for 1 person, and is individually pre-packed and sanitized, ready for your collection upon arrival at the Zip Zap Dome on the day of your show.

Picnic orders will close 48 hours prior to the show.

While beverages will be available to purchase at the show, there will be no food on sale nor will outside food be allowed, so be sure to pre-order your picnic boxes when you buy your tickets!
