New Farm Park
Football as we know it is descended from an unruly medieval game in which one entire village pitted itself against another. The Beautiful Game takes us back to these wild roots in an exuberant roaming spectacle. Featuring armour, an oversized football, and bike-riding referees, this performance sees women and non-binary people step onto the footy pitch, ready to do whatever it takes for a common goal. This project has been created by Snapcat, a creative collaboration between the Australian artists Renae Coles and Anna Dunnill and presented as a part of Co-MMotion: Brisbane City Council’s Temporary Art Program 2018.
