Description
Home movies videotaped by dancer Jamie Bishton during White Oak Dance Project's 1990 tour. Bishton documents the venues, rehearsal spaces, hotels,and hospitality during this first tour, and there are many sequences shot on tour buses, planes, and airports. Aside from "Pas de Poisson" in Volume 1, there are no other recorded dance works - instead, the footage consists of candid and comic moments with the company. Highlights include: Mark Morris and Peter Wing Healey singing with the White Oak Dance Project Orchestra on a night off; an extended tour of White Oak Plantation's wildlife sanctuary; Mikhail Baryshnikov accepting an award from the mayor of Jacksonville, Florida ; Morris playing badminton with the company; parties with Howard Gilman and Annie Leibovitz; and a playful Baryshnikov donning the head of a passerby's Halloween costume. There are also many 'in-jokes' (e.g., a running gag about each venue's shrimp plate), a delightful stop-motion sequence, and a series of post-performance dance reviews from children attending a party. From the dates on marquees and seasonal cues, the footage covers tour dates in October and November, 1990.
