Zip Zap and CPO are back together pushing the boundaries to reach the peak of classical entertainment, with artists painting with their bodies and defying gravity. A group of circus dare devils will jump, fly and soar through the air. This will be followed by an array of deep and emotional performances effortlessly done at 8 meters high hanging from a piece of fabric. The beauty of these acts will be reinforced by the simplicity of the apparel and the crystal voice of Robyn Botha. This is what one can expect at Journey Beyond.
