In “Etendue”, or “to stretch”, we once again see the theme of rehearsal or preparation. This everyday occurrence is lifted out of the ordinary into the extraordinary because the etendue is part of a whole; it is the path to the goal - the dream. In this piece the fluid lines always have a counter movement to every movement. Thus, the piece is in perfect balance. In the modeling of the sculpture, MacDonald has portrayed an accurate rendering of this ballet exercise, thus allowing for a true perception of the emotion and energy inherent in the work.
