Putting the balls away( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Putting the balls away is a reenactment of the historic September 21, 1973, tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs, created for broadcast on the 35th anniversary of the original event. The Battle of the Sexes was the most-watched live sporting event at that time, and pitted chauvinist against feminist, when women tennis players demanded equal pay to that of their male counterparts. Both players are performed by Mateik, whose work wages strategic operations to overthrow institutions of compulsory gender. After each game the competitors "switch sides". Excerpts from the sports commentators, Howard Cosell and Rosie Casals, exemplify the spirit of the match."--Internet
