Theatre: Personal Political Physical Challenge

Tuesday, August 21, 2012 - 19:15 to Saturday, August 25, 2012 - 19:15

((We would love to have Melbourne activists engage with our work and are offering a 2 tickets for the price of 1 deal to help that happen.))

There are party politics, gender politics, class politics and moral conundrums to navigate and an unforgettable ‘Jane Fonda Workout’ integrated into the choreography. The pacing and dynamics are beautifully pitched. This is a piece that delights and surprises; thoroughly entertaining.
— The West Australian

A couple try to reignite the fire through radicalising exercises in their garage, drawing obscure occupiers to their alternative suburban melodrama.

Featuring dance, theatre and healthy doses of agitprop design opulence, this work is a provocative, entertaining and adult extrapolation of the childhood game of risk: truth, dare, physical challenge. It is a uniquely high stakes, double blind experience.

Personal Political Physical Challenge is created by West Australian hybrid performance company Hydra Poesis. The team includes director Sam Fox – recently awarded one of the inaugural Sidney Myer Creative Fellowships – an ensemble cast led by Rachel Arianne Ogle and James Welsby, and an exquisite original score by Perth’s woman-Korg-laptop-matrix Stina.
