Slow Sports Kids

Albert Quesada/fABULEUS

There is something in the pure physicality of sports that we find uniquely attractive and fascinating. From the Games of Ancient Greece, to the frenzied crowds of modern stadiums, sporting competition has produced a powerful, communal form of intoxicating ecstasy.  

With Slow Sports, choreographer Albert Quesada brings the total experience of sport into the theatre. He places the audience on a grandstand and provides five dancers with the rules of the game. In this arena we try to understand how sports are experienced, and why they hold such a fascination for us.
