Training Ground took place during the lead up to the Australian Football League (AFL) Grand Final. In this new action, a team of Melbourne-based performers, trained by Public Movement, undertook a daily drill inspired by the rules of AFL. The daily actions began at the edge of Melbourne’s Central Business District, at a site marked for a future memorial on the corner of Franklin and Victoria streets. There, the team signaled the beginning of the drill by embodying a temporary physical structure at the site, before continuing on foot past several Melbourne institutions to Melbourne’s City Square. When the team arrived at City Square, they staked out a temporary playing firled where they activated a series of gesture of conflict rooted in AFL games in a choreography that combined moments of confrontation, acts of appropriation, and the passion of physical rivalry. Training Ground made its mark daily, leaving footprints in the sand of City Square.
