Description
Mikhail Baryshnikov and Merce Cunningham rehearse "Occasion Piece". Each 'take' of the work is framed by either applause or a lowered curtain; at 20:45, the camera is shut off prior to the next take. Conversation is audible throughout. While overall visual quality is fine, the final curtain call is out of focus.
