In this short work, a sexually ambiguous trio unfolds. Two women and a man toss back champagne and weave in and out of couplings that hint at romantic relationships among all three. Wordplay-laden voiceover text suggests the thoughts of the individuals as they appear before us. In a nearby hallway, dancer Holly Schiffer performs. The two women and the man move in and out of doorways and eventually find themselves on a rooftop. The piece is approximately eight and one-half minutes long.

Moody original music by Michel Deneuve accompanies the work.

The two women and the man wear dark, formal evening wear. Schiffer wears a simple white dress.
