EARLY BIRD OFFER: Ahilan Ratnamohan - Drill

Three athletes meet in a late night, never-ending training session. Sweaty machismo gets a poetic makeover as sprinting, jumping, falling and accelerating merge in an indefinable training sequence. Drill is an exploration of the choreographic potential of athletic movement and training that revels in an exhausted euphoria.

"The rigour, focus and commitment of all three performers combine to make this a stand out performance" - ArtsHub

Book tickets now at the special early bird price of $20!
