Physical DescriptionVideocassetteExtent: 1 videocassette (VHS) (70 min.) : sound, color ; 1/2 in.
DescriptionMikhail Baryshnikov and White Oak Dance Project perform Past Forward, a retrospective and celebration of Judson Dance. Live dance works alternate with video sequences, created by Charles Atlas and narrated by Baryshnikov. The video depicts a brief history of the Judson via stills and interviews, then each live work is bracketed with a quick decription from its choreographer. Public participation is part of the program: local dancers and community members take part in several works. This appears to be Part A of the two-part program. The recording begins with the videographer(s) discussing camera functions; the discussion picks up later on. Usually, David Gordon's "Chair" follows the introductory video; unusually, the work is cut out completely after the initial title slide and musical cue. Similarly, Yvonne Rainer's interview prior to "Chair/Pillow" is cut. Visual quality is poor, with audio channels occasionally cutting out. The audience is quite responsive, particularly during Emily Coates performance in "Carnation".
