The CHR invites you to a performance of Ne’er So Much The Ape, a work produced, directed and written by Professor Jane Taylor, and performed by Jane Taylor, Tony Miyambo and Terry Norton .
First performed for an international Consortium of Humanities Centres and Institutes hosted by the Centre for Humanities Research at UWC in 2017, ‘Ne’er so much the Ape’ returns to the Alexander Theatre in Cape Town. The performance is in part staged with a hand-carved puppet chimp made by Adrian Kohler, of the world-renowned Handspring Puppet Company. The show is a combination of puppetry arts, intellectual history, and world-class acting. Jane Taylor is a playwright, holds the Andrew W Mellon Chair in Aesthetic Theory and Material Performance at the Centre for Humanities Research, and is the author of “Ubu and the Truth Commission” and “The Transplant Men”.
