Cockfight

The Theatre Royal Presents the Farm's Production. Two blokes in an office: one older, one younger. A cross between The Office and a cage fight, Cockfight is a game of comical one-upmanship that builds to moments of emotive impact, where generational truths are exposed and unpacked. A flash of bared teeth, territorial pissing contests, the desperation of needing to prove yourself versus the need to hold on to what you’ve got. Cockfight explores the power play between men, the frailty of the ageing body and questions our culture’s desperate struggle for achievement. ‘Its physicality is masterful and its comedy biting.’ Dance Australia.
