Cockfight by The Farm


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

From the team who brought you Frank Enstein (with Co3 Australia) and Good Little Soldier (with Ochre Dance Company) comes Cockfight, a full-throttle mashup of extreme physical risk taking, slow-mo fight scenes and deliciously dark humour.

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 where generational truths are exposed and unpacked.

Cockfight explores the ridiculous power play between men, the frailty of the ageing body and questions our culture’s desperate struggle for achievement in a darkly humorous and surprisingly tender piece of dance theatre.

Perth favourites THE FARM return with long-time creative collaborators Joshua Thomson and Gavin Webber reassessing who is in charge.

"Innovation and originality are all too rare in theatre these days. That's why The Farm's Cockfight is such a delight" - Stage Whispers

“Its physicality is masterful and its comedy biting.” – Dance Australia

“The two performers give it their all – by the time the 70-minute work reaches its tightly knotted finale the pair are sweat-soaked and breathless. Entertainment and artistry are well balanced” – ArtsHub
