Ballers is a duet devised and performed by two people or players. The piece extracts references of Basketball and the analysis of the movement of Rudolf Laban. Exploring and playing with space between improvisation and structure, between play and dance, between intimacy and aggression, between contact and lock. The piece explores and imitates the ideas of the competition, both artists they compete to win a game with a structure that doesn't really work. making the rules of meaningless or redundant play, here entering a dance or performance setting. The piece for me also has to do with relationships and intimacy, sexuality. How we navigate and play, or even dance through these qualities with others.
