Written wholly in rhyme and created by an extraordinary cross-disciplinary team; the stunning dystopian world of One the Bear guarantees to burst your senses and expand your mind.
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?
One the Bear is vital, contemporary political theatre that explores themes of identity, exploitation, appropriation and friendship in a world gone wild with celebrity.
With its infectious beats, dynamic and innovative design and powerful performances, One the Bear is a not-to-be-missed experience for schools.
