Dance





In a game of petanque, the problem is the ball.
Petanque is 20 percent of technique and mechanism, the other 80 percent are philosophy, tragedy, romance and melodrama.
Practicing petanque discipline is a complex and specific set of corporal contortions generating a graceful choreography.

The losers put their jackets on again; their balls were already tight in leather case. Several quarreled by laying the blame for the defeat. The voice of Pessuguet arose: and the ceremony? While youths shouted in chorus: Fanny! Fanny! It's tradition, we should respect it! Among general rejoicing, two young men came with a large picture. The three losers advanced while the crowd applauded. I crept to the front row and saw with astonishment that this painting was a butt, nothing else but a butt; no legs or back or hands. Just a big anonymous butt.
