Theatre production highlights indigenous suicide


Stemming from the suicide of a 10-year-old girl in the Kimberley region of WA in late 2016, there was a ripple effect of indigenous youth suicide in the region and across the country.

Through gripping physical theatre, The Man with the Iron Neck, highlights the struggle, loss and pain of losing young children to suicide owing to intergenerational trauma within indigenous communities.

Playing at the Adelaide Festival from the 8th-11th of March 2019, the show is a gripping act of social commentary written, directed and acted by leading indigenous theatre-makers in the country.
