mobile, interactive stilt theater – oversized footballers transform the globe

Football connects, football moves. Oversized football can do all that and much more. Grotest Maru, the Berlin specialists in vertical theater, take off their boots and swap them for stilts. They move a giant ball one floor higher than usual. What do they succeed at? What do the players fail at? What new moves are created? Does the 'holding six' hold the position? Is the 'nine' fake or real? How creative is the 'ten' really? How clever is the coach? With a big ball, it's off to small goals. At several stations "GloBALL" tells stories about football and footballers in short and snappy episodes. It's all about balls, of course, balls that are moved, kicked and put into orbits. A game for young and old, to watch, cheer on and join in. And with a ball that we all sit on and should therefore treat with care.
