About Sexwise
Sexwise is a national touring sexual health promotion theatre programme using live performance and dynamic facilitation to engage rangatahi/youth, whānau, and communities in dialogue. The goal is to create a transformational and empowering experience, rather than simply deliver information. The facilitation method acknowledges rangatahi/youth as sexual beings who can make healthy choices.

Healthy Relationships and Sexuality themes and dilemmas are performed by the Performer-Facilitators. The narrative intentionally contains loose ends and unresolved conflicts to provoke thinking. Unresolved conflicts framed in the performance are the basis for dialogue with rangatahi/youth audience members about the issues and behaviours depicted. Audience members have an opportunity to provide real advice to the fictitious characters. In this way, our approach acknowledges young people as knowledgeable and fosters peer learning.

In considering bringing younger audience members, your discretion is advised. 

Sexwise is made possible by generous support from the Rātā Foundation and the Ministry of Health. A gold coin donation is appreciated.
