In the Rehearsal Room

  • Cite

Two ballet dancers, a man and a woman, prepare for rehearsal in a studio as a man's voice issues directions. Coming together, they perform a lyrical and expressive duet, as light streams through windows in the background. Music is Johann Pachelbel's "Canon in D." The credits are very difficult to read, because of the size of the type. Only partial credit information has been transcribed. Choreography is by William Carter.Produced by David W. Hahn.

"Artist's Showcase" was a series designed to showcase video art and experimental work from WGBH. The program ran on Sunday evenings at 11 P.M., from the fall of 1976 through 1982. In the early 1970's, "Artist's Showcase" was the only consistent broadcast outlet for many of the Workshop productions. Most materials of broadcast quality created at WGBH in the mid-1970's were shown as part of this series. Additionally, earlier video art experiments and segments of related shows, such as "Mixed Bag" or "What's Happening Mr. Silver" were broadcast under these auspices. This series was also a broadcast outlet for a handful of works by video artists that were not created at WGBH but only acquired for this purpose. Some compilation reels showing highlights of Workshop activity were also broadcast.
