In this five-minute-long work, two female dancers perform a duet in a lush outdoor garden setting. The dance uses techniques of unison and partnering. Often one figure is seen in the foreground. A voiceover provides evocative and mysterious text, which seems at times to relate to the movements being performed. The Roseland referenced in the title was a famous New York ballroom. Cate Deicher is the choreographer.

The uncredited music is orchestral ballroom music.

The women wear simple, long, white gowns.
