French with German translation

As a warm-up for the 2018 World Cup, French director and playwright Mohamed El Khatib creates an Austrian version of his highly successful play Stadium, a humorous
anthropological analysis of football fandom among supporters of RC Lens. When the “best French fans” meet Austrian football aficionados and Viennese theatre-goers, it becomes clear what it means, despite all the social and cultural differences, to be one audience, one block of spectators!

Concept and directed by Mohamed El Khatib, Fred Hocké
Artistic collaboration Violaine de Cazenove, Éric Domeneghetty
Project assistance Coraline Cauchi
Stage/Lighting design/Video Fred Hocké
