We visit schools all around Australia and perform our specially-designed interactive show, which tackles important topics surrounding mental ill-health, such as depression and anxiety. We are also able to provide custom scripts for your community’s specific needs.
The story showcases a lived experience with mental ill-health, and asks students to consider what they would do in each scenario. Our hour-long show features three professional actors and caters for audiences of up to 200.
Audience members walk away from the Mind Blank experience with specific knowledge of mental health issues, ways of promoting good behaviour, and tactics for avoiding harm.
Our goal is to reduce the risk of suicide in Australia through interactive performances.

Why Mind Blank?
Theatre use in an educational setting can help students to open up and engage in discussions about their shared experiences and help promote positive change.
The interactive nature of Mind Blank helps audience members reflect on their own personal situations, and come up with solutions that work for them. The audience tries to fix things, and the actors remind the audience that things aren’t always so easy to fix.
