Consent is a hip hop and spoken word inspired play opening up the discussion of what consent means and how to spot the early warning signs of it being broken.
Targeted to Year 10 upwards.
We explore healthy relationships, peer pressure, coercion, society’s expectations, alcohol, the right say no post previously saying yes, drugs, self-esteem, changing your mind, communication and how to ‘read’ each other including body language and vocal language.
Rai and T make great music and are best friends. Zeb is part of the team as boyfriend and band member. And then he meets Libby and the picture is complete. Two relationships spending time together making great music and each other happy. Until things start to go wrong and no one seems to know where it started and what to do about it.
‘A no’s a no until it’s a yes. You know… you have to persuade them a bit’
A simple case of either a ‘yes’ or ‘no’?

There has been so much media about the issue of consent we have been increasingly worried that our young people are receiving mixed messages through the media, the news and our politicians. In addition, there seems to be an attitude that consent is about a simple no or yes but of course it’s way more complicated than that.
