Centre of Contemporary Arts The Farm & Performing Lines Presents:

Event: Cockfight

Book Online

Two blokes in an office. One older, one younger, each body pushed to its limits in this hilarious and ultimately tender piece of physical theatre. These men challenge each other in a series of comical one-upmanships that build to a moment of impact where everything is suspended, the flash of bared teeth, the mutual reliance on the fight, the desperation and loneliness of success. Cockfight is a poetic look at the power play that occurs between men and the frailty of the body. It is evocative of age and passing time and questions our culture’s desperate desire for achievement. Without each other these two performers have nothing left to fight for.


At the heart of Cockfight is a very real relationship between Josh and Gav who have been working together for many years. Their humour, trust and understanding allows them to take extreme physical risks that will leave you on the edge of your seat. Bringing together the inventive theatricality of physical theatre company THE FARM with NORPA’s Artistic Director Julian Louis, Cockfight will provoke and excite in equal measure.


Come and see what happens when these two men give it all they’ve got.

These guys make dance like the Coen brothers make films” Lindy Hume, Sydney Festival Director
