Stunt show set to wow visitors at Global Village in Dubai



A stunt show featuring car chases, motorbike flips and other death defying tricks is part of the entertainment at Global Village this season.

Produced and designed by Global Village’s production and entertainment team, the show is one of a kind and involves over 30 international stunt performers.

The plotline starts with a news reporter covering a live event that is taken over by a group of thieves who are attempting to rob the town museum. Then police show up and an action scene ensues before the criminals are caught.

Called “Speed … Chase… Action!”, the show will take place in a new stunt arena with a seating area for more than 1,000 people.

It will be performed three times a day until the end of season on April 8.

Global Village's opening hours are from 4pm to 12am Saturday to Wednesday and from 4pm to 1am on Thursdays and Fridays in addition to public holidays. Mondays at Global Village are family and 'ladies only' days. For more visit www.globalvillage.ae/en/

TOUCH RULES

Touch is derived from rugby league. Teams consist of up to 14 players with a maximum of six on the field at any time.

Teams can make as many substitutions as they want during the 40 minute matches.

Similar to rugby league, the attacking team has six attempts - or touches - before possession changes over.

A touch is any contact between the player with the ball and a defender, and must be with minimum force.

After a touch the player performs a “roll-ball” - similar to the play-the-ball in league - stepping over or rolling the ball between the feet.

At the roll-ball, the defenders have to retreat a minimum of five metres.

A touchdown is scored when an attacking player places the ball on or over the score-line.
