Production Synopsis
H e a r M e M o v e TM brings you an educational tour that aims to address abuse, gender based violence and bullying in schools. We will follow a young budding crew as they chase dreams and crash land into the deafening realities that their fellow crew mates must brave. We challenge our society to probe deeper into legacies of societal myths, the phenomenon of ‘indoda ayikhali’ (Boys don’t cry) and ‘imbokodo iyabekezela’ (Women must suffer in silence) and so many other myths that have deluded our youth into perpetuating our homes, and every street corner, as the breeding ground for gender violence. Our audiences will also partake in a workshop that allows for dialogue in the true spirit of our budding democracy, and creating a society that is conducive for the country we all desire.

I am your sister, I am your brother, I am your friend, your girlfriend, your boyfriend, your daughter, your son, umshana wakho, indodakazi wakho, but most importantly, I am human and I #IwillDoBetter #ICandoBetter – End of Synopsis

Wandile Molebatsi the producer of the film said Dance and music have always carried mysterious powers of healing and expression in our Communities. Through the special medium of storytelling we hope to entertain young scholars in schools to consider healthy ways of expressing their anger and communication. The educational theatre show is a response to alarming cases of gender based

violence in our schools, and a call to action for all of us to educate each other about gender based violence and safety in our schools and communities.

We are looking for new talent to help us carry this important message to young boys and girls in our schools.

Through this production we hope to educate young people that sexual abuse and violence is not the answer and is certainly not ok!!
