Physical Description
Extent: 2 videocassettes (VHS) (144 min.) : sound, color ; 1/2 in.
Mikhail Baryshnikov and White Oak Dance Project perform Past Forward, a retrospective and celebration of Judson Dance. Live dance works alternate with video sequences, created by Charles Atlas and narrated by Baryshnikov. The video depicts a brief history of the Judson via stills and interviews, then each live work is bracketed with a quick description from its choreographer. Public participation is part of the program: local dancers and community members take part in several works.
