Physical Description
Extent: 2 videocassettes (VHS) (172 min.) : sound, color ; 1/2 in.
Mikhail 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 description from its choreographer. Public participation is part of the program; local dancers, students, and community members take part in several works. Typical of videotapes, the first performance ends, there is a bit of black space, and then a recording of another performance's ending (with the same personnel) is revealed.
