Can comedy lull us in to an acceptance of the inexplicable, and nullify our desire for perfection? 


Stepping sequence is a step by step guide for creating a performance. Half of the work is choreographed, half of the work is indeterminate. The dancers understand the structure of the piece - it is like a map to get them from beginning to end. The contents of the journey however is misty, and only hints at what is to come.
