Kafka's Ape

From South Africa comes the Australian premiere of multiple award-winning Kafka’s Ape; a solo performance about a primate’s struggle to overcome the confines of captivity, presented by Yililiza and The Blue Room Theatre for the Summer Nights program. 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 and survival in post-apartheid South Africa and in the human race in general.
