Three individual drawings were created, at three different times, using three different rubber duck models that have the same basic design.

The title for this piece references the Saturday performance schedule for the Ringling Bros and Barnum and Bailey Circus. The weekend work schedule was always difficult, mentally and physically, due to the repetitive nature of the work. For the audience member the experience is unique, but for the performer, that same experience is a choreographed routine; the focus lying more on the execution of the performance rather than artistic creation. Despite the similarities of shape and form within these three paintings, each 'performance' is unique.
