Just One Chapter
Theatre / Dicks

Through the human library we experience humanity in all its forms. People from all walks of life enter your world and you open yourself up to new and profound experiences where prejudice and bias don’t exist…just connection.

Often when we meet those who live on the periphery, we find commonality we did not know existed and walls are broken down.

The true to life concept of a Human Library was initiated in Denmark at the turn of the 21st century to break down barriers between people and create true symbiosis, even if it was just for a few moments. In the play actors Reneé van Rensburg and Carel Mouton, explore some real-life stories and some with characters that exist in our dreams or on pages but share our pain, anguish, joy, laughter and ultimately, the very things that make us human.
