Mikhail Baryshnikov and White Oak Dance Project in a performance at the Spokane Opera House.

Nancy Colahan ("Harmonica Breakdown") and Carol Parker ("Nocturne") dance solo; Dirk Platzek replaces Rob Besserer in his solo piece in "Waiting for the Sunrise". Video quality is good, with many mid-shots and close-ups; audio fades in and out in a noticeable 'cycle'.
