“There are things that happen on a dodgeball court between a man and a woman that make everything else unimportant”

Bloomshed go up against a sub-elite AFL team in an all-out Battle Royale. Get drenched in the sweat of these Titans of the Court as they compete for the heart of aging southern belle, Tennessee Williams. In this brave new world, those who win will inherit the earth, and those who lose are lost for good.

Bloomshed make critically acclaimed award-winning performance which pushes the boundaries of what theatre is and can be. From immersive installations to radical re-imaginings of classic texts, we mix big political ideas with entertaining and accessible storytelling. Our work is a high-octane mess of delicious diatribe, dance breaks, and doom scrolling.
