Meaning in this dance is implied in its responsorial form—a series of group responses danced in alternation to the leader's call. The dance combines "pure" movements with the mimed pulling of heavy barge ropes. Dancers sing a traditional Russian song, the text of which has undergone minor changes to conform to the spirit of the October Revolution.
