The Football Diaries


The football Diaries is a theatre show by Ahil Ratnamohan. I worked with Lara Thoms to create the video content.

The Football Diaries is a meditation on art and sport in which an engaging personal story merges with new dance, popular culture and contemporary life in Australia and Europe. Ahilan’s narrative, drawn from his own journal writings whilst seeking and failing to gain a professional players contract in Europe, combined with his virtuoso football skills, give the audience an insight into an athletes’ experience of space, time and emotion. This is a truly original theatre experience, operating at the level of immediate enjoyment and wonder, with layers of social commentary and even philosophy creating a strong and lasting impression.

The Football Diaries is a fascinating exploration of new and fresh theatrical possibilities in which different worlds come together….His use of visual imagery and video footage are also fascinating.
