Man With the Iron Neck

Date: 21 Dec 2018

A new work about a small town Australian family, finding hope and embracing life after trauma. 

When Ash loses his best friend Bear to suicide, he starts to idolise 20th century stuntman The Great Peters, who jumped from bridges with a rope around his neck and lived. But the fabled stuntman’s death-defying legend is an impossible dream to follow.

Written by Ursula Yovich, with spectacular aerial performance and video design, Man With The Iron Neck delicately and determinedly addresses the issue of suicide among young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, focusing on hope and solace.
