Details

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.
