Michael Essien I Want To Play As You
Contact, Oxford Road, Manchester, M15 6JA
‘You might not know us. You might not see us. But we are training. All over Europe. All over the world’
Michael Essien I want to play as you… is a powerful and explosive football-dance-theatre performance exploring the line between hope and desperation for young African footballers who migrate to Europe to play professionally. Six West-African footballers invite an audience into their world of training, politics, visas and contracts.
