Since Ali Died
Griffin Theatre Company presents
Since Ali Died

30 Jan 2019 to 2 Feb 2019


Float like a butterfly, sing ‘til I’m free…

Returning to his home turf after a triumphant sold-out run at Griffin’s inaugural Batch Festival, rapper, poet and award-winning author Omar Musa brings us his electrifying show, Since Ali Died.

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.

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

“The show unfurls like the river imagery in Musa’s evocative script: borne on a central, unstoppable current, fluid and fluent in a style of its own making.”  Time Out

“Omar Musa writes hard, beautiful poems about things that are true.” Kate Tempest
