Physical Description
Extent: 1 videocassette (VHS) (93 min.) : sound, color ; 1/2 in.
Mikhail Baryshnikov and White Oak Dance Project perform "Blue Heron" and "Greta in the Ditch". Baryshnikov solos in "Pergolesi", while the company dances in "Chickens". Poor visual quality and dim lighting make individual dancers hard to distinguish. Time code runs throughout. The audience reacts strongly to "Pergolesi" and roars with laughter during "Chickens".
