Scope and Content

Static camera at distance from stage. Upstage and sides often in darkness as lighting. This can obscure dancers movements. Dancing on floor difficult to see due to lighting as are movements when dancers are in pairs. Difficult to distinguish individual outlines particularly in bright light which makes colour white. Colours visible (green of dancers’ costume) but not costume detail. Sound quality falters at around 21 minutes 25 seconds. No set.

Condition note:
