Theater Emory commissioned the play, which is based on chimpanzee behaviors observed by Emory psychologist Frans de Waal when he was a young researcher at the zoo. The video report is in Dutch, but the images give an idea of the elaborateness of the large, outdoor staging of the drama for its ongoing European tour.
