Scope and Content

Static camera. Camera tilted at a slight angle. Left and right extremes of the stage out of frame and subsequently dancers out of shot when in those areas. Set includes a giant piano keyboard ramp. A large prop is brought on stage approx. 20 minutes in, however this is difficult to distinguish. Monochrome lighting, dark at periphery, losing some choreography. The movements are clear but not fine detail such as footwork. The sets and costumes are brightly coloured. Voices, possibly of production technical staff can be heard a few times in the first 10 minutes, then for the entirety of the last 6 minutes.

Condition note: Overexposed, noise interferance

VHS duration section: 00:26:05 - 00:48:24
