Physical Description
Extent: 4 videocassettes (VHS) (92 min.) : sound, color ; 1/2 in.
Mikhail Baryshnikov and White Oak Dance Project dance in four choreographic works: "Signals", "A Suite of Dances", "Mosaic and United", and "Blue Heron". Baryshnikov performs "A Suite of Dances" solo and joins the company for "Blue Heron". This appears to be one evening's performance, with each work recorded on a separate tape. In volumes I and II, the audience sound is cut off during the curtain calls; an audible hum is present in these 'silent' patches.
