The Office mashed with a cage fight.
A dangerously comic physical performance.
An emotive generational showdown.
Two blokes in an office: one older, one younger.
A cross between The Office and a cage fight, Cockfight is a game of comical one-upmanship that builds to moments of emotive impact, where generational truths are exposed and unpacked. A flash of bared teeth, a territorial pissing contest, the desperation of needing to prove yourself versus the need to hold on to what you’ve got.
Cockfight explores the power play between men, the frailty of the ageing body and questions our culture’s desperate struggle for achievement.
A full-throttle mashup of extreme physical risk-taking, graceful movement and slow-mo fight sequences, this darkly humorous and surprisingly tender piece of dance theatre by acclaimed Gold Coast/Berlin company The Farm, sees long-time creative collaborators Joshua Thomson and Gavin Webber reassess who is in charge.
Two performers on a stage: one older, one younger.
At The Farm, work is made in a collaborative process where everyone brings their expertise without being confined to it. All animals are equal.
