A suite of four dances for a female dancer, each about a minute long. An exuberant example of Duncan's choreography. Requires a mature dancer who can sustain the earthiness of the Duncan technique while conveying the playfulness of the movement. Notated when Lori Belilove arranged and set the work for Les Ballets Trocadero de Monte Carlo.
