26 Mar 2021 to 27 Mar 2021 Once Only Event
Ice Land: A Hip h’Opera is an exciting new work using the power of hip hop to explore a pressing issue within our communities, featuring new music from Aussie hip hop legends Downsyde, Layla and Moana Mayatrix.
With the flow of jazz, the soul of blues and the energy of electro, 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.
Using powerful testimonials from users, carers, family members and many others to piece together a full-length contemporary theatre performance using hip hop as the key musical and philosophical drive, join them as they explore the journey of Ice addiction in all its states, including happiness, invincibility and clarity, through to despair, fear, psychosis and ultimately, the breakdown of our communities – their ruin.
Alongside a team that boasts some of Western Australia’s best artists, including Australian hip hop kings Downsyde, WA hip hop queen Layla, and multi-disciplinary performer, musician and singer Moana Mayatrix of MOANA, they 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?
