To try and tackle the problem that is methamphetamine is a difficult feat, which is why some of Western Australia’s best hip hop artists have used their musical talents to create Ice Land: a Hip h’Opera. Produced by Yirra Yaakin Theatre Company, the show will take you inside the world of ice, demonstrating how the drug can cause a ripple effect throughout a community. The show takes place at the Subiaco Arts Centre, running from October 15 to October 26.
The theatre performance will utilise hip hop to explore the emotional aspects of ice addiction. The show draws experience from testimonials given by users, carers and family members.
The cast of the show features hip hop group Downsyde, singer-songwriter Layla, Moana Mayatrix from Moana and hip hop maestro TROOTH. Each of these artists were also involved with the show’s creation and song production.
Ice Land: a Hip h’Opera plays Subiaco Arts Centre From October 15 to October 26. Tickets from the Subiaco Arts Centre website.
