Description
White Oak Dance Project rehearsal of "Greta in the Ditch" and "The Good Army." Tere O'Connor addresses the camera to introduce "Greta in the Ditch" and give a bit of detail about composer Grazyna Bacewicz. After concluding "The Good Army", Mikhail Baryshnikov - who has danced in both works - comes forward to thank O'Connor, saying "you are really talented." The footage is shot through a fish-eye lens, presenting a circular and distorted image. The camera position on this footage differs from *MGZIDF 57, though it appears to be the same rehearsal space.
