Two blokes in an office. One older, one younger, each body pushed to its limits. A cross between The Office and an Australian style cage-fight, this game of comical one-upmanship builds to a moment of impact where everything is suspended.

Straight from Australia’s Gold Coast, Cockfight explores the power play between men, the frailty of the ageing body and questions culture’s desperate desire for achievement. Skilfully enacting a full-throttle mash-up of extreme physical risk-taking, graceful movement and slow-mo fight sequences, this is a darkly humorous and surprisingly tender piece of dance theatre by The Farm.

Duration: 1 hour 10mins with no interval
