Stories to Heal Violence is a theatre production that tells courageous stories (verbatim) about acceptance, growth and learning through experience. This collection of stories originates from people's narratives of their childhoods and their experiences of family violence and transformation points. This production will look at how changes are always possible and de-myth the idea that those who are experiencing family violence are ‘bad people’. Dunedin has a high rate of family violence and we wish to highlight the changes that each client has experienced in an honest and artistically creative portrayal, which helps to plant the seed that as a community we can support each other in creating change. This project will honour the stories told by real people and their bravery in wanting not only to change, but to make a difference for their children, families and wider community.
