Two power players in one office, an older and a younger gentleman, battle it out. Hilarious and edgy, Cockfight by The Farm is a farcical comedy about competition that builds up to an emotional climax. The generational gap is exposed as each man fights for his territory even in the pettiest of ways. The need to prove yourself along with the need to hold on to what you’ve got creates a generational clash that is a sight to see. Cockfight explores the power struggle, the desperation to fight against age and the extreme drive to achieve.
Physical and emotional, biting, dark and edgy yet tender at times, the dynamic movment and the slow-mo fight sequences create a one of a kind dance theatre experience by the newly formed Gold Coast/Berlin company The Farm. Long-time creative collaborators Joshua Thomson and Gavin Webber fight to be in charge.
Two performers. One stage. Age versus youth.
Cockfight was nominated for two Helpmann Awards in 2016, for Best Ballet or Dance Work and Best Male Dancer in a Dance or Physical Theatre Work.
At The Farm, everyone brings something to the table. All animals are equal.
“Sidesplittingly hilarious and beautifully athletic and graceful.” ABC Arts
“Physical theatre at its most extreme: bodies slam into walls and office furniture, and perilous interlocking rolls, tackles and lunges fling performers through space.” The Australian
