The Chouas

[En anglais] A nocturnal pilgrimage to an out-of-bounds football court.  Synchronised breathing, ritual dances, obscure football history, acclamations, refrains and Cruyffian* technique.   

Flirting with a scary boundary between fiction and reality, Klapping is a new urban movement form founded by Feras the Shield and Maestro Ahil.  They initiate the audience into this strange, but familiar, new form;  Starting with its history, moving through foundations and fashion codes and arriving at the euphoria of a battle, over the course of the evening the audience is initiated, beginning their transformation towards football deity.  By bathing/immersing in football paraphernalia and reveling in the energy of the court, Feras the Shield and Maestro Ahil guide the audience through this search for profound spiritual significance in the idiosyncratic codes and rituals of football. 

*Cruyffian refers to concepts developed by the late, Dutch, footballer, Johan Cruyff.
