PROGRAM NOTE

World Premiere

SYNOPSIS
In patriarchal societies, it is the male gaze that contributes to the formation of women’s body image. Many women are not satisfied with their body and obsessed with losing weight to the point that they suffer from eating disorders. In order to break the cycle of self-hatred, perhaps women need to rebuild their relationship with their body. Four vulnerable women who desperately want to love themselves decide to play soccer together. Although they are not physically capable of long-time training, they encourage each other to keep playing soccer. Under the scorching hot sun, these four women bear in mind that their body belongs to them and that their body is what makes them “them”.
