This is the first time Zip Zap Circus and the Johannesburg Youth Orchestra Company are performing together. Zip Zap Circus has taken this unique approach to a theatrical production to the stage in Cape Town and across the world but it is the first time they have joined forces with a Johannesburg-based orchestra at Joburg Theatre.

It is also the first-time youth performers are producing a show with other young musicians. Zip Zap Circus enables young people across all cultures to learn the art of circus performance. Meanwhile, the Johannesburg Youth Orchestra Company has helped 300 youth develop successful musical careers.

Journey Beyond –  Symphonic Circus is the resulting spectacle of their collaboration – which is particularly apt for Heritage Month.

The show is a modern take on circus performance. Many of us can remember that feeling of wonder as we watched trapeze artists walk high above awestruck crowds or simply the fascination jugglers brought us as children.

Journey Beyond – Symphonic Orchestra now gives us a chance to feel that same awe of our childhood when it opens later this month. It is also the perfect opportunity for our own children to see these gravity-defying feats in an age where traditional circuses are losing relevance.

It is a magical production combining the best parts of circus performance with the beauty of a full orchestra. There is no better outing for your family during the school holidays. Reward your children for their hard work during the last school term by purchasing tickets.
