The Walking Tall Educational Theatre Project

Walking Tall inspires learners to recognise, understand and value their African heritage by using physical theatre to ignite an interest in the origin sciences. Using performing arts to teach science is the perfect way to spark curiosity in learners and demonstrate that science is fun.

Walking Tall is an interactive educational theatre project that teaches learners the story of life on earth from its early beginnings to the present day - using physical theatre to cut across language and cultural barriers, and to explore complex subjects like human evolution and the origin sciences.

Over the past decade, Walking Tall has performed to well over half a million learners around the world and worked with thousands of educators - helping them integrate scientific ideas into everyday classroom teaching and introducing learners to interesting career options in the field of origin sciences. PAST monitors the educational impact of the Walking Tall project through a stringent learner and educator evaluation process under the management of its Chief Educational and Scientific Strategist.

Walking Tall is co-directed by Greg Melvill-Smith and Craig Morris, and performed by Carla Harris, Thabo Monareng and Buntu Tembani.

In 2011 the Walking Tall project expanded to include ReVerse, a theatre offering aimed at adult audiences. Please see the PAST website for more information on ReVerse.
