Presented by the State Theatre Centre of WA and Performing Lines Part of the MoveMe Festival
19 – 22 Sept at the Heath Ledger Theatre, State Theatre Centre of WA
Two blokes in an office: one older, one younger.
From the team who brought you Frank Enstein and Good Little Soldier comes Cockfight, a full-throttle mashup of dance theatre with extreme physical risk-taking, slow-mo fight scenes and deliciously dark humour. I’m looking forward to reviewing the show on opening night and thanks to Perth Theatre Trust and State Theatre Centre of WA, two lucky readers and their plus ones will be joining me (see giveaway details below).
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, territorial pissing contests, 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.
“Cockfight is a darkly comedic work that confronts the mindless violence associated with intergenerational male rivalry.” – The Australian
