A visual feast with a powerful educational element

Warrior on Wheels is a fantastical tale of Liqhawe, a young boy destined to go on a great journey. Told through the use of puppetry, physical animation and vibrant storytelling. Inspired by the book of the same title written by Deirdé Gower, the mother of a disabled child; this show speaks to the strength a child discovers when overcoming their fears. Through the use of puppetry, the story resonates deeply with both parents and children alike, as they project themselves onto stage. “The puppetry is inclusive,” says Penny Youngleson, who originally helped adapt this book for the stage, “it’s amazing to watch… the relationship between the mother and the puppet….adults really respond well to that.”


"Warrior on Wheels" is a multi-lingual, performance created for children aged 7 – 12, which can be enjoyed by the whole family. It is produced by the Chaeli Campaign and is touring the Eastern Cape in July partnership with Assitej SA.
