Combining hip hop, physical theatre and contemporary dance, ‘H.O.H’ throws subliminal social and political issues with sophisticated humor on a football pitch.
H.O.H is an interactive, immersive dance piece that is centered on the nation’s favorite sport, football, tackling socio-political issues that affect our everyday life. Using the concept of football; the athleticism, the skill, the flamboyant characters are used as a forum to communicate with the audience wider issues that are happening in modern society. The audience will essentially become just another competitive team mate or loyal football club hooligan as they are channeled to actually respond to the un-masking of serious content such as racism, economic climate and cultural stereotypes.
H.O.H will comically force the audience to look at the nation’s beloved game from a different perspective; through hip hop theatre and contemporary movement the dancers will combine fast paced footwork, physical floor work with thrilling vitality: performing a fury of scenes that are ironic, amusing yet demanding.
H.O.H is co-commissioned by Without Walls, Greenwich + Docklands International Festival and Norfolk & Norwich Festival and supported by Arts Council England
