Two blokes: one older, one younger, in a cross between The Office and an Australian style cage-fight. Extreme physical risk-taking, graceful movement and slow-mo fight sequences, in a darkly humorous and surprisingly tender piece of dance theatre. This game of comical one-upmanship builds to a moment of impact where everything is suspended. A flash of bared teeth, the desperation of needing to prove yourself vs the need to hold onto what you’ve got.

Cockfight explores the power play between men, the frailty of the ageing body and questions culture’s desperate desire for achievement.

Post-show Q&A with the Company: Tue 24 Oct

“It is sidesplittingly hilarious and beautifully athletic and graceful.”
