Freestyle wrestling is notorious as one of the most difficult sports on Earth. Nick has been trying to learn how to do it for 10 years. Watch him attempt to teach his students, defeat his opponents and justify working so hard at something that may never ever pay off. Nick will use a real gym, real wrestlers and real live wrestling to help all of us look at the reasons that we strive to conquer realms that we will never ever conquer.
Rachel works with Nick Delatovic as a collaborator and outside eye. Single Leg was presented as a work-in-progress at Crack Theatre Festival 2017, and will continue development in 2018 with the support of ArtsACT.
Nick Delatovic is an interdisciplinary artist based in Canberra. His stuff is about restriction, ordeal, power, fun and existential dread. He is a nationally-ranked freestyle wrestler. Check out CTF’s interview with Nick.
