Experience the South African National Circus
The South African National Circus (SANC) prides itself on presenting a “circus arts human performance with an African twist”, which appeals to all ages and across all cultures. The talented performers are trained by world-class SANC artists at 2 Willow Road in Hartleyvale, Observatory.
The circus also makes equipment available for public participation. This is suited to corporate team-building exercises and special events such as birthdays.
The circus’s main objective is to offer community development with a difference, by training people from disadvantaged areas for a career in the circus.
Performances include aerial cable, cradle trapeze, a one-of-a-kind contortionist who fits himself into a small bottle, clowns, wire walking, high diving, human pyramids, limbo fire acrobatics and pole balancing.
Follow the fun to the big tent where the performances take place. Contact the circus to find out show times and information on open days. Prices are available on request.
