"The Temperaments" features six New York City art handlers re-interpreting male solo choreography from Balanchine's classic ballet, "The Four Temperaments." The performers have never learned or rehearsed choreography before. No movement material was shown to them, and they were asked to create movement material in response to specific verbal directions that were scripted based on video footage
of the ballet. This process, as well as the resulting film, intends to raise questions about authorship, technical expertise, obedience, and the nature of the archive. Choreography by Alison D'Amato.
