Man With the Iron Neck

A powerful new physical theatre work that delicately explores a family dealing with trauma.

A powerful new work about a family embracing life after trauma.

When Ash loses his best friend Bear to suicide, he starts to idolise 20th century stuntman The Great Peters, who continually feigned death jumping from bridges. But this death-defying
legend is an impossible dream to follow.

Man With the Iron Neck delicately and determinedly addresses the issue of suicide among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youths, focusing on hope and solace.

Written by Ursula Yovich, with spectacular aerial performance and video design, this bold and tender story is based on an original work by Josh Bond, who created this piece with co-director Gavin Robins.
