2011 EDUCATION IMPACT AWARD WINNER
The AREPP:Theatre for Life Trust is an applied theatre organisation which has been operating nationally in South Africa since 1987. AREPP:Theatre for Life creates high quality applied theatre productions and travel to schools nationwide. Performed in the real-life context and in the local language of the audience, the productions have two aspects: the performance of a thirty minute play; followed by a thirty minute problem-solving discussion with the audience.
Using a rights-based approach each show is age-appropriately crafted to highlight and foster thought and debate around the issues of identity, rights, relationships, discrimination, gender equality, homosexuality, pregnancy, peer pressure, sex, substance use, HIV/AIDS and STIs, violence, and physical and emotional abuse.
