Festival SPRING / Derby

Event's calendar
Festival SPRING / Derby

DERBY is the story of a women?s contact sport, Roller Derby, played on roller quad bikes.

The aim of the game is for one of the players to overtake the opposing players in a given timeframe without being thrown to the ground or leaving the track.
An inclusive, extremely physical and technical sport, it is staged like a real show, and acts as an intimate revelation of personality for those who experience it.
Above all, Roller Derby is about values that cannot be ignored. It's all about solidarity, self-management, refusal of the standardized body and self-assertion.

Inspired by the stories of the sport?s actresses, we follow their personal and collective journeys of initiation, through the virtuosity and the fall that are central to the sport.

Imagine a runway in which we can build several spaces, a place of sport, performance, emotions and celebration for all bodies. With the intuition that this roller rink shares many similarities with that of the circus.
