The Department of Health (Mental Health Services), SRA Information Technology, Darwin High School, EPRINT and SLIDE present Brave – a thought provoking and heartfelt performance that tackles the challenging issues of bullying through innovative dance theatre interwoven with a powerful soundscape and multi-media.

The cast of 40 performers ranging in age from 8 through to 41 are testament to the talents of local dance practitioners and this exceptional production sends the message “Everyone has the right to live, work, study and play in an environment free from bullying, harassment, discrimination and violence.”

Brave will immerse the audience in the lives of relatable characters and offer them a glimpse at events that for some of them is actually a daily part of their own lives.

Dance theatre connects with our NT students, the music, movement, storytelling and raw emotion engages at a much deeper level than a lecture or an adult telling them what is right and wrong. Giving teenagers the ability to make their own decisions with the issues they face is empowering and helps with that rite of passage through the junior and senior high school years. It is hoped the impact of Brave will inspire our youth to become stronger, braver young adults. Brave similar to the performance of Time in 2012, will definitely be another noteworthy production.
