Brainstorm Productions: Sticks and Stones 7-10


Description:

Educational theatre that addresses anti-bullying in schools and provides strategies for conflict resolution and breaking the cycle of violence.

Two energetic young performers explore the different forms of bullying in the playground, in the street and at home. It provides strategies for conflict resolution, anger management, assertiveness, and breaking the cycle of violence.

School yard scenarios are used to encourage students to have empathy and understanding: invading people's personal space, homophobic and racist remarks, domestic violence and intimidation in person or on the internet are all illegal and have serious consequences.

This award winning show shines a spotlight on negative patterns of behaviour through inappropriate modeling from peers, family members, TV and computer games. It examines the link between hormones, adrenalin, the "fight, flight" response and alcohol fueled violence.

The hard hitting narrative is punctuated with circus skills to demonstrate co-operation and the use of control through breath, focus and channelling energy into positive pursuits. WINNER of an Australian Violence Prevention Award. Seen and enjoyed by over 1.75 million students!
