DEEP NORTH


***** 'A rich, emotional, musical and theatrical performance.....The smart, witty script combined with catchy songwriting and brilliant performances illuminate the stage...,' - Craig Cook, The Advertiser.

A combination of hip hop, afro-beat, R’n’B, theatre and multimedia, The Deep North is a celebration of the African Australian diaspora.

Featuring RnB artist Elsy Wameyo and renowned Adelaide MC Stephen Tongun and playwright Matt Hawkins (Frank Forbes and the Yahoo Boy) The Deep North tells the story of Jasmine Mutesa who has to choose between a scholarship at one of Adelaide’s most prestigious schools and keeping her family from falling apart in Port Augusta. It is an entertaining and empowering story about finding your voice and the meaning of home.

Presented by South Australian Playwrights Theatre, a company committed to new theatrical work from the state’s diverse voices, The Deep North is the first African Australian musical.

Director, Matt Hawkins explains: “It is important for us to provide an opportunity for African Australians to see themselves on stage and to present the rich and diverse stories of the African diaspora. The challenges of living across two, or more, countries and the development of hybrid cultures will be something to celebrate.
