|Since Ali Died by Omar Musa|
"I'm standing in a boat next to Muhammad Ali, floating down a dark river."
Rapper, poet and award-winning author Omar Musa brings his electrifying show Since Ali Died back to the Stables after a triumphant sold-out run at Griffin’s inaugural Batch Festival.
Using the death of his hero Muhammad Ali as a lyrical springboard, Musa dives into a furious torrent of poetry, story and song, confronting everything from suburban violence to lost love to his Malaysian heritage and the dark realities of growing up as a brown-skinned Muslim boy in Queanbeyan.
A livewire, hypnotic and totally unmissable hour of theatre.
“The show unfurls like the river imagery in Musa’s evocative script: borne on a central, unstoppable current, fluid and fluent in a style of its own making.”
Presented in association with Sydney Festival & Riverside Theatres
Director Anthea Williams
