The duo developed variations on a walking dance. Their issue seemed to be staying in unison, and Fleddermann Miller counted under her breath to keep track of the steps. Each woman stole moments to drop out or push herself forward. Just as the dance seemed to be winding down, they’d begin a new episode. Miller gestured and twisted for ages while standing on one leg, leaning against Cunningham’s hand. Cunningham sat in a chair but kept sliding down out of it. They joined in a ballet line, a kick chorus. Chugging and heaving, they rested a minute as Miller took off her shirt and waited for the audience to react. The climax passed. They soldiered on together.
