Description
Mikhail Baryshnikov performs works choreographed for White Oak Dance Project. The three solos may be from one performance, though there is no information on the videocassette label about the date or venue. There is pre-recorded narration by Baryshnikov - a reading from Joseph Brodsky's "The Funeral of Bobo" - during "Embodied". Very poor visual quality throughout, with severe contrast, sharpness, and color issues which are most pronounced at 26:00. There is image 'roll' from the start; picture is lost for several seconds at 26:17. Poor audio quality, with static and dropouts during "Chaconne".
