BEYOND THE SURFACE
Bullying. Mental Health. Puberty. Empathy. Online Safety. Puberty. Peer pressure & substance abuse.
There are four projects in the ‘Beyond the Surface’ series:
CHANGING (puberty), live show or film option available
BULLIED (bullying), live show or film option available
CONNECTED (internet use), live show available
ADDICTED (drugs & addiction), live show available
All four follow an episode of 'Beyond the Surface', a fly on the wall style tv show performed on stage, or presented on screen as a film. The presenter and audience, along with the two teenagers watching the programme from their living room, follow a variety of people of different ages, backgrounds, and personality types as they navigate the nuances of the chosen topic.
Each project consists of either a 40 – 50 minute performance for up to 250 students, performed at the beginning of the day (or a showing of the film) with either one or two different interactive workshops.
Half or Full Day Options.
