Kafka's Ape

This event has passed!

The multiple award winning Kafka's Ape is a solo performance about a primate's struggle to overcome the confines of captivity. Red Peter, the ape, embarks on a journey ignited by finding a way out of a cage he was confined to after his capture.

Based on Franz Kafka's short story A Report to an Academy, the play takes a metaphorical view on society and highlights the complexities of identity in post-apartheid South Africa. Through the journey of Red Peter combined with Miyambo's masterful physical performance, we question the understanding of otherness in this Australian premiere.

Kafka's Ape has won both the Silver Ovation Award at the South African National Arts Festival, 2015 and the award for Best Public Performance at the HSS Awards, 2018.
