Hopscotch was divided into three distinct geographic routes: the Red, Yellow and Green route. Each route featured eight of the 36 total chapters, a mixture of car rides and visits to undisclosed sites. Each chapter lasted ten minutes.
The artists bringing each chapter to life were assigned to one chapter; the audience continually changed cars. It took eight rotations for the audience to experience a full route, with each audience group (four people) beginning at a different stage in the cycle and proceeding in either a clockwise or counterclockwise order.
Ten of the 36 chapters, marked in blue, served as narrative milestones accessible at any time: short, animated chapters which weave the story together.

The 24 live chapters of Hopscotch converged at the Central Hub, the focal point of the entire production. The intimate performance inside the car streamed live to the Hub, where 24 screens gave audiences a dazzling panorama of simultaneous life in Los Angeles. The Central Hub was also the site of the spectacular Finale, occurring at the end of each performance day.
