NEXT Festival’s programme

The “Ultras” are football fans known for fanatically supporting their clubs. Inspired by the conversations she had with them and by their gestural language, the Israeli choreographer Reut Shemesh has created a physical performance with 11 young performers aged between 15 and 21 and presents a piece that questions masculinity, rebellion and vulnerability.
