Kafka’s Ape is a solo performance about a primate’s struggle to overcome the
confines of captivity. The play takes a metaphorical view on South African society. It
highlights the complexities of identity in post-apartheid South Africa and in the human
race in general. Red Peter, the ape, embarks on a journey ignited by finding a way out of
a cage he was confined to after his capture; a journey in which he contests identity based
on outward appearance. Through the journey of Red Peter the play provides a narrative
that helps to question the understanding of otherness.
