15-26 October @ Subiaco Arts Centre ·
Presented by Yirra Yaakin Theatre Company ·
Fractured like shards, Ash, Carly and Joy must fight the demons of their past to reclaim their future, but it’s not easy to leave behind the crystal meth plains of Ice Land.
With the flow of jazz, the soul of blues, the energy of electro and the power of funk, Ice Land: A Hip H’Opera uses the language of hip hop to tackle a tough issue currently affecting our society – the plague of methamphetamine use.
Alongside a team that boasts some of Western Australia’s best artists, including Australian hip hop kings Downsyde, WA hip hop queen Layla, multi-disciplinary performer, musician and singer Moana Mayatrix of MOANA, and solo hip hop maestro Trooth, we explore a very timely subject and ultimately ask the question: if meth use continues to escalate within our communities, what is going to happen to our society as a whole?
Previews: 15 & 16 October
