Note The work incorporated some of the earlier setting of the Sacre score, Wrong wrong (1991) by Petronio and Clark. It celebrated wild sexuality, but in tension with a post-AIDS world, mixing text with music (Mitchell Lager arranged the sound accompaniment as a whole). For the Danse sacrale, the performers lay motionless, and the focus turned to the two onstage pianists. The work evolved further into Full Half Wrong (1994).
