Description
Videotaped on April 12, 1981 by Ed Emshwiller. Panel discussion on Access to early works for study or reconstruction: Progress and problems by John Mueller (moderator), with Virginia Brooks, Muriel Topaz, Marion North, Rose Anne Thom, Marcia Siegel, and Deborah Jowitt. The discussion, which is illustrated by two films of Martha Graham's Appalachian spring (not shown on tape), centers upon the problems of reconstructing and/or preserving dance works through the use of notation, film or videotape documentation, and verbal descriptions. Among the topics discussed by the panelists and audience members are: the validity of multiple interpretations of a work; the criteria for a good reconstruction or revival; the need for more reconstructions/revivals, regardless of quality; the need for notation literacy in dancers; and the value of reconstructions/revivals as an educational tool for dancers. Contributors from the audience include: Carolyn Brown, Martha Hill, Joyce Malm, Kay Bardsley, Bonnie Bird, Valerie Preston-Dunlop, and Billie Mahoney. Occasional gaps in recording.
