    This essay will analyse and discuss the concept, method, and process behind the performance Ball for Achilles. It will account for the various theories, ideas and inspirations drawn from in creating this piece as well as the physical interpretations of these references.
    Ball for Achilles was made as my Individual Project in my third and final year of the BA in Contemporary Dance Practices at Listaháskóli Íslands.
    The piece itself is a combination of queer references in different times, drawn together by a trajectory of travelling through these references, like an arrow shot from a bow. In this essay I will go further into depth regarding two of these topics: the queerness of ancient Greece and the imagining of a queer future. A queer past and a queer present. Throughout this essay I will describe my methods of working in a process such as this. I will introduce the concept behind the piece and the theoretical material drawn from in the creation of that concept. The information gathered around these topics is derived from theorists, scholars, authors, and artists with whom I have gained acquaintance that all contribute to the research of this specific topic while also elaborately describing and discussing how these ideas physically have come into fruition, taken from a theoretical concept into a physical choreographic piece.
