About this show

Harrowing and unpredictable, Tyson vs. ALI realizes the greatest heavyweight-boxing match that never happened, placing two giants of boxing, Mike Tyson and Muhammad Ali, into the ring in a way no one thought possible. Using a volatile combination of dance, theater and new-media stagecraft, artist and director Reid Farrington examines the emotional life and physical experiences of aspiring boxers through the larger-than-life personas of Iron Mike and The Greatest. Tyson vs. ALI explores how differently these two epic fighters reigned as champions and how their histories and personalities affected their community and the world at large.
