In FOOTBALL ECHOES, Ahilan Ratnamohan continues his exploration of the cross-sections between football & dance. A group of Hamburg-based footballers attempt to deconstruct the movements, which are second nature to them on the field, on stage, in a theatre context, without the ball. Remaining true to the game and its fast-twitch steps, reactionary countermoves and the impulses of the ball which define movements, they re-construct these sequences and rituals in search of something new. If there was no competition, what would football be? If football was a dance what would it be?
