cockfight

At the heart of Cockfight is the very real relationship between Josh and Gav.

 

“Its physicality is masterful and its comedy biting”

DANCE AUSTRALIA

“And it is sidesplittingly hilarious and beautifully athletic and graceful.”

ABC ARTS

“Cockfight is a darkly comedic work that confronts the mindless violence associated with intergenerational male rivalry.”

THE AUSTRALIAN

 “A fun-filled romp combining humour and impressive physicality, sure to please comedy and dance fans alike.”

STAGE WHISPERS

“At times broadly comedic, with a Buster Keaton-esque physicality on show, Cockfight switches effortlessly to moments of beauty and poignancy”
