Developed especially for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games, The Squad will bring debase’s signature brand of physical comedy across the coast!
“Expect the unexpected.” – The Herald Sun
Turning the ordinary into the extra-ordinary, taking the mundane and turning it insane and injecting comedy into the everyday, this band of misfits will be roaming the streets for your viewing pleasure.
Using the Games as inspiration their roving performances range from sporting themed acts: ‘The not so normal Netballers’ who present the most peculiar game involving a giant hoop and balls, ‘Everyone’s a Winner Baby’ – a hilarious medal ceremony celebrating sporting heroes crossed with glam rock stars, ‘The Longest Race’ – a comical relay race that seems to never end.
The Squad is commissioned by Festival 2018, the arts and cultural program of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018).
Festival 2018, 12 action-packed days of free culture across the Gold Coast from 4–15 April to celebrate GC2018.
