On Our
Beach

School Season // Term 3

On Our Beach

The smell of sunscreen, seaweed, BBQs, and mozzie repellent fill the scented air, as you and your students join us for the World Premiere of On Our Beach.

A stripe of vibrant blue sea meets a mosaic of colour: umbrellas, towels and toys. It’s summer. Seagulls shriek. We are gathering on the thin verandah that is our coastline, our beach. The perfect setting to explore ideas of identity, connection and belonging, a place where we strip down the layers of our identity, physically and metaphorically.

From this bustling strip of fun and laughter we will follow two people, initially strangers, into imaginary worlds of play, friendship and connection. On Our Beach will take you and your students on a journey that will have inquisitive minds pondering the importance of real connection with others and what contributes to our sense of identity as Australians.

A rich classroom resource for further exploration of cultural identity, the importance of human connection and new modes of expression.

“A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality.”– John Lennon
