"Fractions II" is a different version of the same work as "Fractions I" conceived in the same way that Merce Cunningham's live performances change somewhat from performance to performance. While the work remains essentially the same there are some differences in cast, in choreography and in camera angles and editing. Filmed at the Merce Cunningham Studio, Westbeth, New York, NY.
