Summary Mimi Paul discusses the walking in the duet, George Balanchine coaching her on walking as if on a tightrope, how she was in her own dream-like world but still aware of partner Francisco Moncion, how she listened to the music to become more comfortable, why there are pulses or notches used in the movements of this ballet, how silent the audience is during this ballet's performance, creating the solo, the internal focus she used and how it felt improvisational to her, and how the performance of this ballet has evolved
