“Dancers are the cleverest with their feet, next are footballers.” Johan Cruyff, soccer legend

FORM Dance Projects and Sydney Festival present the world-premiere of Champions, a genre-defying new Australian dance work, directed by choreographer Martin del Amo

In an epic, adrenaline-fuelled choreographic match, a dream team of 11 female dancers makes the moves of the football field their own. From the training drills to the victory dances, contemporary dance and soccer collide.

Under the direction of Martin del Amo, one of Australia’s most innovative choreographers, CHAMPIONS celebrates the talents of elite performers and harnesses the energy and enthusiasm of sport fans.

Developed in consultation with coaches and athletes from the Western Sydney Wanderers W-League, the work features playful pre-game analysis and commentary by Channel Seven sports presenter Mel McLaughlin.

CHAMPIONS draws surprising parallels between football and contemporary dance, and reveals unexpected insights into the fundamentals of athletic and artistic performance.

Champions will be showing at Carriage Works from 17-22 January 2017.
