Shadow Boxing by James Gaddas is a challenging solo work that explores masculinities, sexuality, violence, and identity. It looks at how human beings create their own fights, both inside and outside of the ring.
We meet Flynn late one night after he has made the courageous decision to come out of the shadows. With minimal props and set performer Samuel Addison shows us what brought him to this decision and we witness its aftermath. The character Flynn allows us to delve into the paradoxical nature of humanity – a paradox Gaddas distils through the metaphor of hands, which can be used to create, hold, and caress, or to beat, pound and destroy.
Feet First Collective is known for its larger scale immersive works Frankenstein, S-27 and MEDUSA. Shadow Boxing follows in the footsteps of the finely etched miniature This Is Where We Live, which toured to Melbourne in 2022 to critical acclaim. It offers the opportunity for the company’s theatrically bold and physically inventive style to be distilled in a one-person show.
