In 1982, Morris recast this work with all women, deleted its musical introduction ("Prelude"), and meshed its remaining four parts with the three parts of 1982's Jr. High, an all-male dance also set to Nancarrow's player piano studies. The cast of the final section, "Plastique," was expanded from 4 to 13.
The mission of the Mark Morris Dance Group is to develop, promote, and sustain dance, music, and opera productions by Mark Morris and to serve as a cultural resource to engage and enrich the community.
