The piece is largely based on the idea of shapes, specifically circles and how many ways the body can move in this circular/ spherical motion. The balls are not only used as a movement research tool, but more importantly as an extension of the dancer (one's self). I also want to possibly work with the idea of continuing motion, as well as rebound and other concepts that go along with circles and balls.
I want the dancers to be in full unitards (including the face.) I feel like this creates some sexual ambiguity and allows for the dancers to almost forget that they are human, but rather elements of the dance and, hopefully, as a result truly connected with their ball. Probably most importantly, the goal is that the piece is fun, light hearted, and even silly at times.
