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 to Melbourne, following sold out seasons at Sydney’s Griffin Theatre Company, including at their 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, Australia.

Award-winning director Anthea Williams is once more at the helm of this livewire, hypnotic and totally unmissable hour of theatre.
