TIDAL WAVES

An interactive assembly show about mental wellness created by inwardBOUND.

This interactive short film depicts the life of Denise, a teenage girl living with depression.

 

Denise deals with the lack of support provided by her family and friends. She tries to break down her mother and grandmother's pre-conceived notions about depression. They call her lazy and useless when at times, she is simply unable to function. She explains that depression is a disease like any other disease which needs to be treated and certainly, that there is no shame in seeking help.

Tidal Waves explores the importance of support from friends and family, and also seeking mental health professionals who are equipped to help.

#CANCELLED

But when Alex’s inferiority complex to Sam gets aired in public, people start to question whether Alex is fit to be president at all. Sam accidentally misconstrues Alex’s words and publishes it online. The online mob goes out for blood and cancels Alex. Alex fights back in defense. A misunderstood Alex and a distraught Sam come head to head amid the chaos. Who will emerge victorious in this digital disaster?

It's Just a Joke

An Interactive performance on Xenophobia for Secondary Schools, commissioned by the Singapore Kindness Movement 

When Barbara goes to her new school in Singapore, she is made fun of for being different. Tracy and Jia Jun, both local students, come up with nasty ways to 'Help Foreigners Fit In'.

Of course, this has adverse effects on Barbara's emotions, to the point where she doesn't feel like going to school anymore. She confides in ABC (the school's Ambassador for Basic Courtesy) through a series of vlogs.

In the end, we learn about the ways Xenophobia can hurt someone, and how no one wants to be treated differently. Will Tracy and Jia Jun understand this point of view, or will they continue to discriminate all in the name of fun?

FRIEND OR FOE

An Interactive Show on Xenophobia and Cyberbullying for Primary Schools, commissioned by the Singapore Kindness Movement 

David, a Primary 5 child, is rude and disrespectful to his mother, because all he wants to do is play games on his iPad and abandon his priorities. Even in the game world, he is mean and unkind to other players.

In real life, he discriminates against Lucas, a foreign student who was picked by the teacher to become the class monitor, much to David's dismay. Jealousy, and pre-conceived notions of foreigners cause David to use unkind language to Lucas.

In this show, we unpack different issues from addiction and screen time, to kindness, to xenophobia. Will the game world eventually unite the two boys and can they look past differences to become friends?
