The Chaeli Campaign (www.chaelicampaign.co.za), a groundbreaking NPO, providing services to children with disability is arranging “The Ability Tour”, which begins at the National Arts Festival (4-12 July) and will tour to East London (14-22 July) and Port Elizabeth (24-31 July) afterwards and aims to grow the conversation around disability, ability and inclusion in South Africa.
Tell me about the shows:
Warrior on Wheels – 40mins – (Ages 7-11) A fantastical tale of a young boy destined for great things and even greater adventures. Helped by his guardian-mother, teacher, doctor, school friends and a forest full of fire fairies; our Warrior-Explorer must battle the dark shadow of Fear (and his ghoulish henchmen) in his journey to discover everything he was born to be.
“Warrior on Wheels”, based on Deidre Gower’s book, aims to engage and enliven the imagination and encourage a more accepting society, especially for those with disabilities.”Warrior on Wheels” is a 40min performance created for children aged 7 – 15, which can be enjoyed by the whole family.To book to see this show at the National Arts Festival click here
In the Wings – 1 hour – (Ages: 12+)
This Naledi nominated play aims to engage people with what life is like with a disability. Showing that living with a disability is not always easy, but it isn’t impossible either. People are people no matter what… a wheelchair doesn’t change that!
In the Wings is a play about purpose; about living and negotiating the everyday stuff; it’s a play about dreams and obstacles that get in the way of the realisation of those dreams. “In the Wings” is a story about everyday ‘stuff’, about choices and ultimately about possibility.
