Shows

Approach

Using live, dramatic theatre presentations arepp:Theatre for Life travels to schools providing complimentary interactive social life-skills education for the promotion and development of self-efficacy and resilience.

Each of the arepp:Theatre for Life shows is specifically designed for the targeted age group to foster identification and emotional recognition. The shows incorporate the current music, the sayings and the ‘attitude’ of that age group, and address the audience on their level, in their home language, with stories from their context.

Each performance is followed by a facilitated peer discussion in an open and non-judgemental forum, to encourage debate, and further the cognitive personalisation, problem solving and contextualising of the issues presented.

The productions take a rights-based approach, and are specifically designed to develop the audiences’ self image, responsibility, and decision-making and problem-solving skills in relation to the show’s themes, while simultaneously exposing them to the thrill, excitement and enjoyment of a theatre show. They fully support, enhance and compliment the Life Skills/Orientation Curriculum Statements, and have the endorsement of the Departments of Basic Education, Health, and Social Development.

Each show is age-appropriately crafted to highlight and foster thought and debate around the issues of identity, rights, relationships, discrimination, gender equality, homosexuality, pregnancy, peer pressure, sex, substance use, HIV/AIDS and STIs, violence, and physical and emotional abuse. The approach addresses the development of self-confidence, self-image and self-esteem, and engages with the notions of choice-making, responsibility and tolerance within the framework of the audience’s understanding of their rights, and how to exercise their rights and their civic and social responsibilities, while respecting the rights of others.

Life Orientation Curriculum Productions

Each of the arepp:Theatre for Life shows is specifically designed for the targeted age group to foster identification and emotional recognition. The shows incorporate the current music, the sayings and the ‘attitude’ of that age group, and address the audience on their level, in their home language, with stories from their context.

Each performance is followed by a facilitated peer discussion in an open and non-judgemental forum, to encourage debate, and further the cognitive personalisation, problem solving and contextualising of the issues presented. The intention is to enhance and encourage the development of the audience’s knowledge, skills, attitudes and values to enable them to make sound, informed and honest decisions about themselves; for the present and in the long term.
