Physical Description
Extent: 1 videocassette (VHS) (89 min.) : sound, color ; 1/2 in.
Mikhail Baryshnikov and White Oak Dance Project in performance. Baryshnikov is solo for "Peccadillos", performs a duet with Raquel Aedo in "Soft Center", and dances the rest of the program with the company. The performance locations are unknown, though "Soft Center" appears to be an excerpt from a program at Yale. There are several visual problems, including a 'prism' effect at the beginning of "See-Through Knot", "Peccadillos", and "For the Love of Rehearsal". Audio is significantly dampened during "The Argument", with flutter, wow, and background hum. Problems with muffled audio and sections with missing audience track continue throughout the recording. There is a brief clip prior to "Soft Center" that seems to depict audience members onstage for a curtain call.
