DescriptionMikhail Baryshnikov and White Oak Dance Project perform Past Forward, a retrospective and celebration of Judson Dance. Live performance alternates with video sequences, created by Charles Atlas and narrated by Baryshnikov. This video details how Judson fit within the cultural landscape of the 1960s. Stills and video interviews bracket the performance of live works, explained in part by its choreographer. Public participation is part of the program: local dancers, students, and community members take part in several works. This recording contains content similar to *MGZIDF 139: however, the performance is filmed in a wide shot throughout. Also, the technical issue with "Homemade" alluded to in that recording is captured here, along with an announcement that the piece will be omitted. Like the parallel recording, this tape stops at 50:35 for several seconds of blue screen before restarting "After Many a Summer Dies the Swan". Poor visual quality overall.
