Football: Whether you like it or loathe it – everyone’s got a view on it. This innovative collaboration between one of Europe’s most acclaimed dance institutions and one of the UK’s best football clubs has produced a unique piece of (community) art to explore the highs and lows of football and of life itself – and to attract new audiences.

This production visit gives Theatron members and friends the opportunity to see the world premiere of ‘Home Turf‘ and learn more about the vision, collaboration and the production process behind the show. Presenting a team of over 100 professional and non-professional dancers, including West Ham United Foundation participants, Company of Elders and alumni of the National Youth Dance Company the work is uniquely reflective of the diverse cast, united through football and dance.

A team of international choreographers; Pascal Merighi (guest artist, Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch), Neil Fleming Brown (Studio Wayne McGregor), Michela Meazza, (guest artist, New Adventures) Lee Griffiths (The Company) and composer Murray Gold, have worked collaboratively to create a thought provoking piece of dance theatre.
