Physical Description
Extent: 1 videocassette (U-matic) (57 min.) : sound, color ; 3/4 in.
Mikhail Baryshnikov and White Oak Dance Project perform works from PAST Forward, a retrospective and celebration of Judson Dance. Pieces alternate with video sequences, created by Charles Atlas and narrated by Baryshnikov. The opening video depicts a brief history of the Judson via stills and interviews, then four works are bracketed with a quick description by its choreographer. Public participation is part of the program: local dancers and community members take part in "Scramble", "Satisfyin Lover", and "Exit". Works are presented out of the normal sequence for this program. Poor visual quality and unusual angle to the camera set-up. There are some muffled audio sequences, particularly Lucinda Childs' interview.
