Brent van Rensburg, Co-founder and Artistic Director at Zip Zap shared his
excitement; “After a wonderfully successful season of MOYA in Johannesburg, I
can’t wait for Cape Town to see our philharmonic circus show, Rhapsody! This
show is part of Zip Zap’s 30-year anniversary celebrations, and after its run at
Artscape, the phenomenal talent and passion of these South African artists will be
showcased in France.”
