A new body of work focussing on pioneering women who have an association with the game.
Hannah Kumari’s production ‘ENG-ER-LAND’ is set in 1997 – the year that the FA announced their plan to develop the women’s game to ‘elite level’. Inspired by her experiences of going to matches as a mixed-race teenager, the play blends storytelling, dance and music with 90s nostalgia to tackle racism, identity, lad culture and working-class masculinity.
Hannah wears the limited edition We Are Willow football shirt from AROUND THE MATCH. A new team, film documentary & memorabilia that offers fresh insight into the women of football in and around the match – the female voices that make the game on and off the pitch. Exploring those special moments that affect people long after the final whistle is blown.
