Activity number : 7 Klapping

  • out
  • Performance
  • Kids friendly

A nocturnal pilgrimage on an abandoned sports field, synchronised breathing, ritual dances, acclamations, refrains and legwork. Klapping initiates participants to a new form of urban movement, a street dance drawing its roots in football. Between fiction and reality, this performance stems from the simple desire of a football player to dance. A collaboration between dancers and former footballers Ahilan Ratnamohan and Feras Shaheen.
