Port Elizabeth, Eastern Cape, 24 August, 2014 – Playtime Antics is back on the road with another tour in collaboration with FTH:K to provide access to arts for children with disabilities. Funded by RMB Fund and Europcar, our artists have been performing for Deaf and Hearing children as well as those with other mental disabilities. Here is a beautiful letter from one of the schools where we recently performed:
“Wow, wow, wow!!!
The Clowns without Borders performance was very well put together and presented, we have long last seen our learners so intricately involved with performers as they were on Friday, 22 August. The simple messages were understood by learners whom we feared may not grasp the concept of the stories told. However, the students were very interactive and responded amazingly well.
On behalf of the learners, principal and staff of Merryvale School for Specialised Education here in Port Elizabeth, thank you very, very much for your wonderful performance and for bringing it to special schools – we truly appreciate your input and organization. May you go from strength to strength and grow in your contact with learners who ask for little more than to be afforded some of the opportunities we in mainstream life, so often take for granted.
Antoinette Esterhuyse, HOD: Junior Phase: Merryvale School for Specialized Education”
Well done clowns!
