Fresh from critically acclaimed presentations in four major Australian festivals Man With The Iron Neck is a tale of love, loss, resilience and hope brought to life by soaring aerial feats. This is emotionally charged physical theatre at its best.
In an AFL-mad Aussie bush community three young friends Bear, Evelyn and Ash have big dreams for the future. But when one of their lives is cut short, how do the other two find hope and ultimately choose to survive, instead of meeting the same fate?
Based on an original work by Josh Bond, written by national treasure actor/singer/writer Ursula Yovich, together Gavin Robins and Josh Bond direct this incredible cast of rising star Indigenous performers. Man With The Iron Neck interweaves extraordinary aerial and physical feats with a beautifully written narrative, which entraps us in its tender and intimate world, while at the same time conjuring a rich epic and some times hyper-real landscape with its visual design.
Both heart-warming and heart-breaking this touching story is about choosing to embrace life and find hope through grief. The morning star comes to signal that even at your darkest hour, there is hope.
