TCSC PRODUCTIONS PRESENTS: THE POWER OF SILENCE

WHEN: Tour on hold due to COVID-19
WHERE: Baycourt Theatre, Tauranga

A strong, mighty and powerful boy. A boy with a heart filled of gold and soul filled with empathy and compassion. A boy who weeps, a boy who cries but a boy who lights up with happiness and smiles. A boy who empathises with emotions and wears them with dignity. But a boy who is told this is wrong. And a boy who is teased, broken and mad. And also a boy who is destined to rise above others and break a cycle of silence. A boy who sings an anthem, deafening silence.

The Power of Silence is a dance/aerial production bound to move and wow its audiences.
