Sport, theatre, dance and music meet head-on in this uplifting new work from critically acclaimed Melbourne dance theatre company KAGE. Performed by professional dancers, actors and rising sports stars, TEAM OF LIFE honours both the great Australian game and the world game: Aussie Rules and football.
This production springs from a groundbreaking methodology, which uses sporting metaphors to help young people overcome hardship. Informed by workshops with young refugees and Indigenous youth, TEAM OF LIFE tells of their search for different kinds of freedom, dissolving the boundaries between sport, theatre and identity.
