No Monkey Business: Us & Them deals with discrimination ad bullying, tolerance, and accepting diversity.

Mac Monkey and Vanda Vulture don’t want to play with Tommy Turtle because he’s a reptile, and everybody knows that ‘reptiles are nasty’. Then one day in the forest, when sneaky Clarence Crocodile tries to trap and eat them, the only way our friends can escape to safety is if they see past their differences and learn to work together...

Aligned with the NCS CAPS Life Skills Curriculum for Foundation Phase, the show examines the complex issues of acceptance and co-operation. It looks at how we see others, how we see ourselves, and how, although everyone is different, everyone has value, irrespective of how they sound, what they look like, or where they are from. The intent is to foster the concept of ‘I’m OK, you’re OK’ and prepare the ground for mutual respect and unity.

The aim of the show is to leave the learner with a positive, healthy sense of self and of others, with the understanding that everyone is special in their own way, and how our differences make us stronger.

No Monkey Business: Us & Them covers the following Foundation Phase NCS CAPS Life Skills Study Areas:

Study Area: Personal and Social Well-being

  • Social, emotional and environmental health
  • Relationships with other people and our environment
  • Values and attitudes
  • Safety

Study Area: Creative Arts

  • Provide basic knowledge and skills to participate creatively

No Monkey Business: Us & Them is presented in English and Afrikaans, and will be running in Cape Town from 03 May 2017 to 02 June 2017.
