Come and join us in the Jungle where cheeky baboons, wise elephants, ephemeral butterflies and wondering whales captivate children and youth with their tall tales of the little big things, that make planet earth so magical.
Journey with a princess and a dragon on top of a moon and learn about what really makes the world go round. Listen to the stories of dogs and unite with us in being the change, it’s in our nature!

With the support of the Department of Culture and Sport and the Arts & Culture Trust we have developed two 2-hour workshops for teenagers and young people in the unique Jungle style. Both workshops explore the theme ‘transition’. The movement and mime workshop starts with a short performance demonstrating the techniques the participants will learn and use to express themselves during the workshop and beyond. A traditional story starts the story telling workshop. Participants learn story telling skills and bring the story to life by retelling it in their own words using music and characterisation. The workshops will be tested during the course of February and March in 3 different settings with young people engaged in the arts.

Theatre workshops for children
Muizenberg’s Jungle Theatre Company is introducing a new programme of theatre workshops in the New Year for kids aged 8-12, at Alive Café, 11 Atlantic Road, Muizenberg.
The workshops will bring African folktale to life in the ‘now’, through guided improvisation, storytelling, movement, masks, music and dance, Artistic Director Vincent Meyburgh said: “All stories will have indigenous roots and the process will involve a child-centred exploration of environmental issues and local cultures, fostering a heart connection to nature.”
Through engaging the imagination; physical theatre games and exercises; rehearsing and staging a performance, young people will develop soft skills that will help them in all areas of their lives.
The workshops started on 29 January with another 8 consecutive Thursdays 15h30-16h30; the first Saturdays of February and March 10h00-11h00 concluding with a showcase on Saturday 28 March. The programme costs R750 per child. We still have space available so if you are interested please contact Miranda on 021 788 5641 or email – email@example.com
