Bonanza Farm, N7 Cape Farms, Malmesbury, Cape Town



Animus is a Latin word that has quite a wide variety of meanings, to name a few: Mind, heart, affections, purpose, feeling, thought, sensibility, imagination, sense, consciousness, and our favourite - Soul as Thinking. We found all these words fitting for our Flow Arts festival and the space we aim to create.

This is our first jump from a casual camp to something more like a festival. We have secured a lovely venue close to Cape Town (on the N7) where we can come together to learn, grow, have fun, and evolve.

What we'll do:

The main focus of this event is learning. We will have workshops running throughout the day on just about anything we can, but mainly Flow Arts/Juggling. We will have some of the top performers in Cape Town teaching their skill to anyone who would like to learn it!
In the evening we'll gather around for some music and fire spinning! We will have an open fire circle that anyone who is attending the festival can join in on, provided they are of sound mind! To fuel the circle we will have a wide variety of music playing, either through some speakers, or possibly though the hands of some drummers and guitarists!

What to bring:

- Toys: Any props or toys you might have, hoops, poi, staff, yo-yo's, juggling balls, slacklines, unicycles, anything!
- Lights: Any LED toys or decorations you might have.
- Paraffin: if you intend to spin fire.
- Camping Gear: A tent to sleep in, we'll be camping! We'll have lots of shade, but it wouldn't hurt if you have a gazebo to bring to add to the comfort.
- Food: Food for the weekend, we won't have food stalls just yet, but you can expect some in the future.
- Music: bring any instruments you have at home, even if you don't know how to play it!
- Mind: An open mind ready to soak up new information and skills, or to share information and skills, it goes both ways ;)
- Heart: An open heart ready to accept and be accepted.
- Purpose: Come with the intention to evolve.


We are inviting anyone who knows a thing or two and is willing to teach to be part of our workshop schedule. The main focus is of course Flow Arts based workshops, but we're open to anything, like leather working, yoga, drumming, making jewelry, tea making, ceramics, whatever sets your soul on fire and might ignite a spark in someone else's :)
Please contact us if you would like a space in our schedule, and in exchange we will work out a discount on your ticket price.


We will also need volunteers to help with a couple of things like fire safety, cleaning up (although everyone should do that themselves), setting up and down etc. Please contact us if you would like to volunteer for a discounted ticket!


We are inviting any musicians or DJ's to come play for us, no specific genre, the weirder the better :) We'll have a small sound system set up with a controller, but nothing fancy.
Quiet Time is at 23:30 :) Please respect this, a guitar playing softly is okay, drums are not, blasting your personal speaker or sound system definitely is not okay.

Leave a Better Trace:
Everything you bring to the event must go home with you, including trash. Before you leave, inspect your campsites carefully and clean up the space around you (even if it isn't your mess), so that we can leave the venue better than we found it.

How to get there:

Take the N7 out of Cape Town towards Malmesbury, drive past the Engen One Stop. The usual entrance to the Bonanza Farm has changed due to roadworks. Carry on with the N7 and take the Atlantis turn off to Klein Dassenberg road, about 1km take Rondeberg turn off and 1st entrance on the left turn in. Travel all the way down the dirt roads - our gate is on the right by the cottage, where the parking is and tunnel to the fairy circle.


We will be limiting tickets to 50 people for now at R120.00 per ticket. This includes camping for Friday and Saturday night.
