DESCRIPTIONCapturing the intense team spirit of international soccer, this piece translates the competitive language of sport into the expressive language of dance, adding a built-in surprise. With entertaining exaggeration of the wild passion of soccer, opposing teams swagger through the elements of a championship game, from on-field confrontations to slow-motion replays. Even the audience dons the colors of the opposing teams and participates with enthusiastic chants and cheering. Gradually, viewers realize that the over-the-top players are all women, superficially disguised with marker moustaches. This unique theatre-dance performance is an absolutely hilarious mash-up of high-energy art and athletics.
