Description
Mikhail Baryshnikov and White Oak Dance Project perform Past Forward, a retrospective and celebration of Judson Dance. Live works alternate with video sequences created by Charles Atlas and narrated by Baryshnikov. The opening video (in Volume I) depicts a brief history of the Judson via stills and interviews, then each live work is bracketed with a quick description by its choreographer. Public participation is part of the program: local dancers and community members take part in several works. Audio reverb and echo problems in Volume I, poor visual quality in Volume II. The audio issue is most noticeable during the opening film and narration.
