South Australian Premiere

A 20 minute dance performance in which order and precision give way to chaos, havoc and a whole lot of mess.

Game Theory begins simply enough – two men draw chalk squares on the ground and start playing a game of hopscotch. It’s all very structured, repetitive and civilised.

Then things begin to change shape – the basic geometries and rhythms fracture and multiply as the movement becomes increasingly complicated and physically demanding.

Be transfixed as this energetic dance and body percussion mash-up evolves bit by bit into a frenetic journey around the world, ending in a haze of hyperactive havoc. See why Game Theory has been performed at the best festivals across Europe, Latin America and the Palestinian Territories.
