Fanaticus is a playful collision of contemporary performance and street basketball.
Members of the Rawcus Ensemble collaborate with basketball players and young people from diverse communities to create an energising, exuberant extravaganza.
This is Saturday sport like it should be – a wild and joyful celebration of the communities of our city. Take a seat in the bleachers and get ready for some intensely physical, anarchic play. Who said theatre and sport can’t be friends?
Ball ‘til you fall.
