1 videocassette (U-matic, NTSC) (30 min.) : sd., col.; 3/4 in.
Juggler Michael Moschen and clown/mime artist Bob Berky talk about their respective fields of interest, and the innovations that have earned them the title of "new vaudevilleans." They also discuss their desire for more audience interaction, and the importance of audience response as feedback. Moschen demonstrates his skill in an excerpt from his work Light. Berky, aided by Ipiotis, shows how his act incorporates audience participation. Both performers are also seen in recorded excerpts. In Esoterica balletica, Frances Becker, playing the character "Miss Frances," presents a satirical explanation of Pina Bausch's works, particularly Arien.
