A catalogue of steps reframes choreographic content culled from videos of Dorvillier's work from 1990 to 2004. These fragments will be performed in six different iterations by dancers Katerina Andreou, Oren Barnoy, and Nibia Pastrana. Through a taxonomy invented by Dorvillier and dancers, the choreographer traces the evolution of certain behaviors, steps and approaches across this fifteen-year span of work.
Each live presentation at St. Mark's Church is set up as a visit to a particular category of steps (animals, kaleidoscopic, tableau, as examples). The visitor can experience a few selected fragments being danced over an extended period of time in contrasting settings on different days: the serene space of the church's sanctuary, and the bustling Abe Lebewohl Park just outside the church gates.
