Physical Description
Videotape reel
Extent: 2 videotape reels (90 min.) : sound, black and white ; 1/2 in.
Dance work performed in the windows of an art gallery, viewed by an audience gathered on the sidewalk. There is no musical accompaniment, and most of this recording was made without audio, except for the last 17 min. of cassette 3. This recording, which seems to be a slightly abridged version of the work, includes reaction shots of the audience that do not appear on the wide shot version.
