In motion on the sun, formally dressed participants playing a game of croquet allude to the interaction of gods and planets. Their behavior appears completely random with little regard for the rules of the game, suggesting themes of chaos, aggression and pent up energy. Through their actions, we perceive a drifting through time and the mundanity of a passing day. The piece slowly escalates to a frenzy of agitated commotion, only to wind down at the end of the day, balls forgotten and tossed aside.
