Performers included Latysha Antonio, Oren Barnoy, Sofia Britos, Alice Downing, Non Griffiths, Allegra Herman, Jmy Leary, Adele Nickel, James Tyson, Rebecca Warner, Laura Weston, and Greg Zuccolo. The movement was inspired by a community ballet class Michelson observed in 2007, and included difficult, repetitive phrase work. The piece featured a neon line portrait resembling Michelson, and two projections of the same portrait.
