Series release date: 1974

Program Description

A series of still images of dancers performing a solo, duet, trio, and quartet are edited together to create the suggestion of movement. John Budde provided the concept and the photography and Elizabeth Keene provided the choreography. An ambient score by composer Julie Weber accompanies the piece. This work was broadcast as an episode of ""Dance for Camera" with "District 1."
