A per­for­mance in 4 acts, called dances, with 32 par­tic­i­pants + 7 mon­i­tors + 3 musi­cians
Dura­tion: approx­i­mate­ly 30 minutes 

The work is con­ceived as a form of a social dance, where par­tic­i­pants move in geo­met­ric pat­terns, relat­ing to indi­vid­ual oth­ers in orga­nized, alter­nat­ing sequences. The inter­ac­tions are cir­cum­scribed by the medi­at­ing objects that func­tion simul­ta­ne­ous­ly as con­nec­tions and bound­aries. Respond­ing to the spa­tial delim­i­ta­tions and behav­ioral direc­tives, par­tic­i­pants nego­ti­ate between instinct and instruc­tion, flow and form, pro­duc­ing inter­lock­ing com­bi­na­tions of order and dis­or­der, ten­sion and release, in chore­o­graphed social arrangements. 

The floor is divid­ed into 8 rosettes, each with of 4 par­tic­i­pants who relate exclu­sive­ly, in con­sec­u­tive order, to every oth­er group-mate, in 3 sep­a­rate acts of orthog­o­nal and then diag­o­nal rela­tions. In the final act the par­tic­i­pants in the cen­tral rows relate diag­o­nal­ly to a mem­ber of the adja­cent table while the oth­er par­tic­i­pants move to the periphery.
