Banaball by Clement Bacle & Ludovic Ducasse,Le Voyage à Nantes Art Installation
The sport consists of five foam balls and two teams with three players who must ‘banafreeze’ the opposing competitors by hitting them directly with a ball before it touches the ground. offensive maneuvers are executed from behind the attack line with the use of a hand-held wicker scoop called the banarama, borrowing from the ‘chistera’ of the basque pastime. defensively, incoming projectiles can be blocked by banamoving (dodging), banablocking (with the banarama), or momentarily banahiding behind a banafrozen teammate. when a goal is scored, all banafrozen players on the scoring side are free to move, at which point the entire bunch screams ‘bbaaannaaaabbaaaall’, celebrating the fruits of their labor.
