Out of Time

  • Cite

Marha Gray's work entitled "Images Diffused by Time" is re-titled as "Out of Time." In this moody work, filmed at Fort Strong on Long Island in Boston Harbor, three dancers (a man and two women) move through the rocky landscape. Against the backdrop of the ruins of the fort, the reaching and curving gestures are lyrical in tone. Susan Dowling works her way down a misty path at the work's completion. Unidentified classical music accompanies the work.

This work was broadcast as a segment in the "Frames of Reference" dance showcase "A Place to Dance."

"Frames of Reference" was a series that began circa 1978. Half-hour shows were produced to showcase commissioned and already created works. It was around this time that the focus of the Workshop shifted, to concentrate more heavily on creating works for broadcast. During its time, "Frames of Reference" was the focus of the Workshop's national arts programming effort. The series ended circa 1983.
