Verbal Combat

Resilience & Anti Bullying Program

An educational theatre performance for high schools that explores online safety, bullying, group dynamics and the role of bystanders. Supported by a Q&A and curriculum-aligned teacher resources.

This theatre in education program explores the complex dynamics that emerge within peer groups and the harmful impacts of (cyber)bullying.

The performance depicts the challenges students face, as they try to find their place in the social world. Some will get caught up in rumours and bullying, while others try to maintain power and control.

When schoolyard issues spill over into the online space, some students are left feeling hurt, embarrassed and confused.

A cleverly crafted narrative gives strategies for reporting, help-seeking, restitution, empathy and compassion. Students are encouraged to examine their own behaviour and create more respectful environments at school and online.

Verbal Combat is designed to stimulate discussion and complement the wellbeing and anti bullying strategies already in place at your school. Brainstorm Productions is endorsed by the eSafety Commissioner as a Trusted eSafety Provider.
