Team of Life - KAGE

Fresh from the World Premiere at the Melbourne Festival, KAGE presents TEAM OF LIFE, a remarkable performance work, spanning several generations, languages and codes. 

If you thought of your life as a team -

  • Who would be your coach - the person who has taught you the most in life?
  • Who is protecting your goals - your fullback or goalkeeper?
  • Who is cheering you on?
  • What is your team defending? What values are you protecting?

Sport, theatre, dance and music meet head-on in this uplifting new work from critically acclaimed 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.
