Yirra Yaakin Theatre Company presents Ice Land: A Hip h'Opera, the journey of three people held in the grips of Methamphetamine. Haunted by addiction and memories, they are thrown together at the Emergency Department of an understaffed hospital. The three tell their stories of what brought them to where they are, and the role that Meth has played in getting them there. Aided by the enigmatic Dnale Ci, it is a twisted tale of grief, addiction and redemption.

Yirraka Yaakin has gathered powerful testimonials from users, carers, family members and many others to piece together a full-length contemporary theatre performance using hip hop as the key musical philosophical drive. Join us as we explore the journey of ice addiction in all its states, including happiness, invincibility and clarity, through to despair, fear, psychosis and, ultimately, the breakdown of our communities - their ruin.
