SINCE ALI DIED Omar Musa
Griffin Theatre Company
“I’m standing in a boat next to Muhammad Ali, floating down a dark river…” – Omar Musa Using the death of his hero Muhammad Ali as a lyrical springboard, rapper, poet and award-winning author Omar Musa brings his electrifying show Since Ali Died to Adelaide after acclaimed seasons in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne. Confronting suburban violence, heartbreak, his Malaysian roots and the dark realities of growing up as a brownskinned Muslim boy in Queanbeyan, Omar presents an alternative view of the Australian experience with razor-sharp wit, brutal honesty and a cheeky sense of humour. A livewire, hypnotic and totally unmissable hour of theatre. SPACE THEATRE FRI 1 NOV 7pm SAT 2 NOV 7pm DURATION 1 hr 5 mins Adult $45 Conc $39 GreenRoom $30
“His language is vivid and urgent, his delivery assured. Musa’s is a distinctive, imaginative voice too rarely heard on a main stage” Sydney Morning Herald
