The Austral/Asian Post:Cartoon Sports Edition reflects Australian society’s obsession with sport in the form of a theatrical comic book. Using live-action replays and real-time recording, vox pops, exhibition matches, gestural codes, tonnes of sweat and enough adrenaline to wake the dead, NYID play-makers capture the essence of sport in private moments, archetypal actions and extraordinary psychological states where politics, racism, jingoism, advertising and the 2000 Olympics loom large in the company’s award-winning hard-line, visual, visceral vocabulary.
