Scope and Content

Static camera at a mid distance. Can see whole of stage. Prior to curtain up there is a loud thunder noise. Live music with sound loss at times. Dark lighting for majority of performance. At 00:11:30 lighting overexposes dancers and it is difficult to follow choreography. For most of the performance can see choreography but not detail e.g. faces and costume. Costume, all dancers wear full-body unitards at start. In a later section female dancers wear black ball gowns with full skirts. No set. A large cloth is used as a prop.

Condition note: Tracking errors, occassional sound crackles

VHS duration section: 00:00:00 - 00:17:00
