The Austral/Asian Post-Cartoon: sports edition

Multi Media Performance                
Malthouse Theatre, Melbourne 1997                

A perversion of sport in the form of a theatrical comic book. Live-action TV replay, voxpops, knockouts, gestural codes, sweat, adrenalin and muscle subvert sport and politics, racism, jingoism, advertising and the 2000 Olympics in NYID's award-winning hard-line, physical, visual, visceral vocabulary. The NYID play-makers capture the essence of private moments, archetypal actions, extraordinary psychological states and physical events at the intersection of sport and culture.
