Fringe Festival: Fight or Flight

BATS Theatre Friday 2nd - Saturday 10th March 6.30pm, $15/12/10 Bookings: 04 802 4175 |

What are YOU scared of?

A quirky physical comedy about fear and all the phobias that hold us back in life.

From our mundane superstitions to our life shattering moments the phobia’s we carry are explored and examined in this new devised work by BRAVE.

BRAVE’s last Fringe Festival show Anything to Declare? by Mel Dodge was a sold out success that also travelled to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where Mel stumbled upon the idea for a new play about fear in the age of the ‘terror attacks’.

“We were at the airport coming back home after Edinburgh at the time of the last attack on London. We were restricted to plastic carry on luggage and it was surreal how docile those around us were in giving up their liberties in the name of fear.”

Starring and devised by Mel Dodge, Gene Alexander, Robyn Patterson and Nat Bolt a variety of characters are explored from a woman obsessed with terror attacks, a man who has a fear of commitment, monsters under the bed, creepy crawlies and OCD’s ..

'Very funny, cleverly directed and wonderfully acted. And it’s only the company's second show. Bring on number three.'–Capital Times Quarter Pounding (2006)

'One of the most honest and real pieces of theatre I have seen all year.'- Salient
