Two blokes in an office: one an old rooster, one a young cockerel.
A cross between The Office and a cage fight, Cockfight is a game of comical one-upmanship that exposes generational truths, and the desperate need to prove yourself versus the wish to hold on.
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.
Skilfully depicting 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.
