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.


"Life is soccer and soccer is life."
– The New York Times
