I’M YOUR MAN

PERFORMANCE SPACE AND MOBILE STATES PRESENT

I’M YOUR MAN

A BELVOIR PRODUCTION IN ASSOCIATION WITH SYDNEY FESTIVAL, CREATED BY ROSLYN OADES

Enter the boxing gym – a place of dreams of glory, of a better life. Between skipping ropes and punch bags, you train hard, being sure of only one thing: you will eventually lose.

For months, theatre director Roslyn Oades followed a determined young boxer from Western Sydney through his preparations for a world title fight. Based on the recorded interviews of those she met along his journey, I’m Your Man is the story of legends, up-and-comers and failed contenders who have been irreversibly changed by the fight game.

The no-holds-barred dialogue boils with the absolute immediacy of the ringsides, gyms and backstage dressing rooms before a fight; the words of Oades’ interviewees delivered verbatim, as heard through earpieces.

Testosterone-fuelled, high-stakes theatre at its best.

‘Ringside voices deliver a knockout punch… you will seldom see theatre as vivid and as warm as this.’
 Sydney Morning Herald
