Description
The fourth Act of the June 11th concert of the 1981 New Music America Festival was a dance piece by Nancy Karp. Conceived as a site specific work for the Rotunda of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art it was performed by 10 dancers, with choreography and music by Nancy Karp with additional audio production work by Bill Fontana. The score for the dance features some rather sparse yet quite pretty piano music. On listening to it one can easily imagine the 10 dancers slowly twirling and moving in the entwined patterns invoked by the pieces title.
