Joining Vaughan will be Charles Atlas, the original filmmaker.
Channels/Inserts was originally choreographed especially for the first video which will be shown, and was a collaboration between Merce Cunningham and Charles Atlas. The piece was later adapted for the theater, and the second video will show a live performance of the work at the Jacobs Pillow Dance Festival in Becket, Massachusetts on July 10, 1993.
