Physical Description
Extent: 1 videocassette (VHS) (30 min.) : sound, color ; 1/2 in.
Mikhail Baryshnikov and White Oak Dance Project perform "Tchaikovsky Dance". While visual quality is generally good and the camera work includes fine close-ups, there are points where the titles are cropped, dampening the work's visual humor. In one section, an attempt at a close-up results in a brief unfocused section. This performance is unusual due to a mix-up in titles and a lag in title timing. As Jamie Bishton dances, the title reads "Raquel"; Emmanuèle Phuon's titles appear while another dancer is onstage. This synch issue is resolved as the performance progresses.
