Scope and Content

Can see whole of stage, camera slightly off centre. Simple set, no props. First part of dance is in silence, coughing can be heard from audience. The audience are laughing at comic movements, but it is not possible to see what the dancers are doing. 8 minutes approx. visual disturbances on screen. Music then dips down low twice. Difficult to follow choreography as the camera is at a far distance and the lighting is dark. This makes footwork, faces and costume detail indistinct. Costumes sparkly.

Condition note: Dark recording, blurred outlines

VHS duration section: 00:00:22 - 00:22:05
