Lineup and Details for Sports Play on Thu 19th July 2012
Coinciding with the London 2012 Olympics, Just a Must, in partnership with the Austrian Cultural Forum London, is staging the English language premiere of Sports Play by Nobel Prize laureate Elfriede Jelinek.
Jelinek explores the marketing and sale of human bodies and emotions in sports with angry wit, questioning our obsession with fitness, body image and high performance at any cost. Sport is seen as a medium for fanaticism, as a form of war in peacetime.
Blurring the boundaries between a theatre event and a sports event, this performance turns Jelinek's linguistic gymnastics into an Olympic feat for the actors and audiences alike.
