Yirra Yaakin presents Ice Land: A Hip h’Opera

Monday 14th October / presented by Bec Bowman

Yirra Yaakin uses the power of hip hop (performed by some of the most incredible talent in the industry!) to explore the tough, crucial issue of meth addiction within communities.

Drawn together from lived experiences and testimonials gathered from users, carers, and family members, the performance will explore all aspects of Ice addiction, from happiness and clarity to despair, psychosis and destruction.

The production features new music from some incredible Australian talent, including Downsyde, Layla, Moana Mayatrix and TROOTH.

Zac James, the show's librettist, spoke to Bec about the process of creating the show.
