Bullying and Cyber Safety Program
Educational theatre that addresses cyber safety and cyber bullying in schools and helps improve student wellbeing and mental health.
Ruby loses her moral compass online. Anxious and struggling with impulse control, she is in danger of ruining her digital reputation. She is instantly banished to Cyberia.
Tim is in self-imposed exile. A lack of sleep and social interaction leads to mistakes, scams and misunderstandings online. He becomes isolated and withdraws into gaming.
Tim and Ruby must find their way back to retrieve their dignity, privacy and relationships.
In consultation with education and mental health experts, our creative team have woven together true stories of students' online experiences. It poses questions about how excessive and irresponsible use of technology is affecting our brains, our humanity and our future.
