Mark and the Marked
Friendship and anti-bullying performance and workshops in primary schools
New for 2017
Mark and the Marked uses vibrant physical and visual performance techniques to draw the children in the audience into the heart of a typical bullying scenario. A carefully structured workshop discussion allows the audience to work out what went wrong and why and, ultimately, to make their own happy ending to the play.
Using the play, we will raise awareness of the positive aspects of diversity and the importance of difference for both the school community and wider community. This project expands on the work we have delivered in the area working with young people as part of The Hate Play project, delivering an understanding of community throughout the authority.
“I would recommend this 100%! The simplicity was incredible for all students to relate to: use of colour, mixed gender, technology and engaging methods were so professional, beneficial and understood by all!”
