“…SIDESPLITTINGLY HILARIOUS AND BEAUTIFULLY ATHLETIC AND GRACEFUL” ABC Arts

Two men in an office: a young cockerel desperate to prove himself, and an old rooster trying to hold on to what he has got. A cross between The Office and a cage fight, Cockfight is a game of comical one-upmanship that exposes generational truths.

With a flash of bared teeth, and territorial disputes, Cockfight explores and questions the power play between men, the frailty of the ageing body and our culture’s desperate struggle for achievement. A full-throttle mashup of extreme physical risk-taking, graceful movement and slow-mo fight sequences, this is a darkly humorous and surprisingly tender piece of dance theatre.

In newly formed Gold Coast/Berlin company The Farm’s Cockfight, we see long-time collaborators Joshua Thomson and Gavin Webber reassess who is in charge.
