In an epic, adrenaline-fuelled choreographic match, a dream team of 11 female dancers make the moves of the football field their own. From the training drills to the victory dances, contemporary dance and soccer collide.
From director Martin del Amo, CHAMPIONS harnesses the energy and enthusiasm of sports fans and celebrates the talents of elite performers.
Developed in consultation with coaches and athletes from the Western Sydney Wanderers’ W-League, the work features playful pre-game analysis and commentary by Channel Seven sports presenter Mel McLaughlin.
Dancers: Sara Black, Kristina Chan, Cloé Fournier, Carlee Mellow, Sophia Ndaba, Rhiannon Newton, Katina Olsen, Marnie Palomares, Melanie Palomares, Kathryn Puie and Miranda Wheen.
