'That look on her face. It's kind of, I don't know, smug.'
A suburban netball team. A new player. She says she wants to fit in but if she won't play by their rules why does she bother coming at all?
A sweaty play about the petty and the profound, the mundane and the mythic, Contest is an elegy to everyday experience and asks how we might be with each other if we don't need to win.
Contest has been supported through City of Yarra Performance Investigations and Malthouse Theatre via the Malcolm Robertson Prize.
