The piece touches upon some of the central themes and emotions in the piece Carmen, Love, Sexuality, Seduction, Jealousy, and Death.

Danced to rhythmic percussion music of the Dutch group Percossa, the piece consists of five sections, drawing from variations of Uniformity, growing Passion, the emergence of Individuality, leading to an Escape followed by Freedom.
