Co-operate with Brand, say, and dance (4,4)


I think it could be either:

Which length description are you looking for?:



play ball

'co-operate' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'brand say and dance' is the wordplay.
'brand say' becomes 'play' (Brand by Henrik Ibsen is an example).
'and' says to put letters next to each other.
'dance' becomes 'ball' (ball is a kind of dance).
'play'+'ball'='PLAY BALL'

'with' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for play ball that I've seen before include "Agree to comply with someone else's rules" , "Most boys love to" , "Do what is needed" , "Be cooperative" , "perform service in court" .)

I've seen this clue in The Guardian.
