A visually stunning new production created especially for teenage audiences.
Thrive is about three young people who didn’t go looking for suffering, but suffering found them anyway. Thrown together by the sudden death of someone they knew, Thrive takes on the challenging subject of trauma and beautifully portrays the unsayable.
Surprisingly though, Thrive isn’t a morbid piece of theatre. It’s hopeful and courageous.Fusing vibrant contemporary text, movement, spoken word, and beautiful imagery, the audience journey with the characters as the community faces a shared loss. It is very difficult to go through life and not face pain or difficulty at some point, either in large or small ways. Thrive is therefore about all of us as we navigate our way through the hazards of life.
Delve into the lives and minds of 3 young people as their world gets turned upside down. Stand side by side with them as they recover, survive and maybe even Thrive in this exciting production for young audiences.
Developed in collaboration with Psychologists and inspired by true stories of young people, Thrive is a beautiful and life-affirming look at finding compassion, perseverance and hope in the face of adversity.
