*Auslan interpreted performance
A fairy tale for the hip hop generation.
One the Bear is the story of a young bear who wants more for her tribe. Set in a tip, where the garbage sparkles and catches in beams of broken streetlights, One and her best friend, Ursula, get up to mischief and mourn the dank life they lead. The two friends spit rhymes about living under Human Hunter law and dream of the days when bears were free; eating fresh fish rather than packaged fish-fingers.
But what happens when One is given the opportunity to speak for her community? What happens when fame knocks at the door?
Using allegory and fairy tale, One the Bear explores themes of identity, exploitation, appropriation and friendship in a performance that will have your students dancing in their seats, growling with the star and engaging in critical conversations.
Written wholly in rhyme and created by an extraordinary creative team, One the Bear is a stunning dystopic world guaranteed to burst your senses and expand your mind.
