THIS PRODUCTION IS PART OF                     Collected Works 2018 COLLECTED WORKS 2018

Stolen calculators. Dirty dishes left in the sink. Your lunch going missing from the fridge. Have you ever dreamed about losing it at your co-worker?

Meet Cockfight, explosive physical theatre that is The Office on steroids. Opening to rave reviews in Melbourne and recently returned from touring the UK and Chile, this must-see show transforms an average office into a boardroom battleground where no-one escapes unharmed. Their weapons of choice include a filing cabinet, a radio, a phone and a pot plant…nothing in the stationary cupboard is safe. Cockfight is dangerously entertaining, bringing high energy action and all the laughs to explore issues of power, acceptance and escaping the monotony that can creep into life. This is physical theatre at its most extreme, dance at its riskiest, and a night at the theatre that won’t soon be forgotten.
