"Two solo performances by two choreographers. Against an incessant beat and a glowing red backdrop, Susan Rose's energetic dancing is captured by dramatic camera angles. Through a series of landscapes, Louise Burns' delicate balletic movements float across the screen." -- WGBH press release

Susan Rose remains seated throughout her solo, performing intensely focused gestures with her arms and legs. Louise Burns takes to the out-of-doors, executing her precise movements at the beach, along a ridge trail, and overlooking a city landscape. The complete work is ten minutes in length.

Music for Susan Rose's solo, which features a driving drum beat and vibrant vocals, is by Megan Roberts.
