"How to Pass, Kick, Fall and Run" had an athletic theme, without any specific references to games. The choreography kept the dancers constantly in motion, never staying in a given place for very long, with two or three things simultaneously occurring on stage at all times. The dancers wore tights and sweaters that they chose themselves, and the music was by John Cage, and included stories from "Silence" &, "A Year from Monday".
