A series of still images of dancers performing a solo, duet, trio, and quartet are edited together to create the suggestion of movement. John Budde provided the concept and the photography and Elizabeth Keene provided the choreography. An ambient score by composer Julie Weber accompanies the piece.

This work was broadcast as an episode of ""Dance for Camera" with "District 1."
"Dance for Camera" was the earliest series created by the Dance Workshop, which was coordinated at the time by Nancy Mason. The series was broadcast in 1976. Carmen De Lavallade, a former dancer with Lester Horton, John Butler and others, recorded introductions for the shows. The series appears to have been broadcast nationally. Some of the works were rebroadcast as part of the "Frames of Reference" series.
