Akcent - festival divadla s presahem
Campo / Het Kip: Goal, goal, goal, goal, goal, goal! - A Football Opera

You've never seen this kind of theatre! For the first time in history real football players and real football fans will meet on stage with actors and theatre creators. The performance will kick off the AKCENT Festival and was tailor made for the Czech environment right in the Archa Theatre. The stage of the Archa Theatre is transformed into bleachers-stage, while the audience assume their places in an imaginary playing field-stage. While the audience gaze at the stage-bleachers, where a whole range of comic situations take place as well as situations full of dramatic tension, the eyes of the actors in the bleachers take in the imaginary match which dynamically frames the whole performance. A Football Opera is a presentation full of music, song and thrilling choreography, which is based on the real experiences of the participating football lovers.
The performance of Goal, goal, goal, goal, goal, goal! - A Football Opera is a tribute to all football fans, while at the same time being mindful of the coarse displays that sometimes unfortunately accompany the game.
Authentic Czech-Flemish football refreshments will be served after the performance.
The evening will also feature the music of the Archa Theatre's international music collective, the Allstar Refjúdží Band.
