Each performance begins with a group dance by ten performers in the park. The performers then disperse to five satellite locations located around the park and along 5th Avenue between 4th and Union Streets to perform duets repeatedly for one hour. Using the map as a guide, the audience tours to these locations in no prescribed order and chooses the music that accompanies each dance episode. The performance culminates with an additional group section back in the park.
