Rapper, poet and award-winning author Omar Musa brings his electrifying one-man show of politically-charged and deeply personal storytelling, rap and song, inspired by the passing of his personal hero, boxing legend Muhammad Ali.

At the core, Musa draws on Ali’s legacy and spins them into stories of his own life, which hasn’t been the same since Ali died. Using this sentiment as a lyrical springboard, Musa surrenders to the freedom of poetry, story and song by shining a light on diverse cultural perspectives.

Musa confronts 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.

Each phrase will hit the ear of the audience in this hypnotic and totally unmissable hour of theatre.
