SABINE VAN RENSBURG
Sabine Van Rensburg was born into a family of circus artists in Cape Town, South Africa. She was swinging and flying from a young age at the Zip Zap Circus School, a social organization founded by her parents in 1992. After graduating l’Ecole Nationale de Cirque de Montréal in 2018, she performed and toured with the contemporary circus company Les 7 Doigts de La Main.
With an eccentric and fearless approach to dynamic aerial silks, she pioneered technique & movement vocabulary on silks. Recently, she has moved into directing and choreographing, debuting a 50min acrobatic art film called MOYA. It has been extremely successful and gained the support of the circus community, as well as praise from the film industry by winning several prizes & being nominated for Dazed Circa 2021. With a special passion for social justice, she intermittently interrupts her career to do volunteer-based projects and community-building initiatives.
