Poet-performer Marc Bamuthi Joseph’s love of soccer is a heritage story. As a child of
Haitian immigrants, the blissful freedom of the soccer field represented the race toward
the American dream. Using spoken word and fútbol-inspired choreography,
/peh-LO-tah/ travels from the pickup games in rural Haiti to the World Cup
stadiums of Rio de Janeiro and Johannesburg, all while combating the
discrepancies of a game that promises freedom yet suffers from racial inequities.
An exploration of childhood fantasies and global realities, /peh-LO-tah/ is a
multi-disciplinary performance set to sounds of hip hop and samba that celebrates
the joy of soccer as perhaps the only game the entire world can agree to play together.
