Refocus your attention to just beyond the baseline. Forehand Down the Line is about the gestural interplay of tennis’ ball people. Performing hidden, rigorous labor in professional tennis these speedsters are the support system to the efficiency of matches.
Philadelphia’s vanguard of interdisciplinary performance Thomas Choinacky premieres this virtuosic dance calling attention to the subtle and off-kilter choreography of tennis’ unannounced workers. Highlighting the agility, absurdity, and queer movement of ball people this visual fantasia will shift your idea of “tennis champion.”
