The One Hundreds "is a hundred eleven-second segments that are performed by two dancers in unison separated by four seconds between each segment...Five people each do twenty different segments simultaneously so that the one hundred are represented one-fifth of the time and then one hundred each do one in eleven seconds, right? You follow me? Let's go through it again. Five people do twenty representing all the phrases in one fifth of the time. And then one hundred people each do one simultaneously. In eleven seconds." - Tharp, as quoted in Ballet Review, Vol. 4:1 in September 1971.
