There is a mere suggestion in these movements of Duncan's many references to "unfoldings." This study may symbolize "a love movement from the unfolding of which like the petals of a flower the dancer would stream as a perfume" (Duncan, My Life, p. 77).
The Tanagra figure which this dance introduces, should be executed with great precision. The first part is very contained. The second part is more open.
