1 videocassette (U-matic, NTSC) (29 min.) : sd., col.; 3/4 in.
Dance historian Millicent Hodson and art historian Kenneth Archer discuss their reconstruction of Vaslav Nijinsky's Le sacre du printemps (The rite of spring) for the Joffrey Ballet. They describe various aspects of the original production by Serge Diaghilev's Ballets Russes in 1913, including the interaction of the collaborators Nikolai Roerich, Nijinsky, and Igor Stravinsky. Hodson talks about Nijinsky's transformation of the academic ballet technique, and the role played by his assistant Marie Rambert. Archer displays a costume re-created from Roerich's designs, and discusses Roerich's use of symbolism in its decorative motifs. The guests also describe their experiences in working with the Joffrey dancers, who are seen in several recorded excerpts from the reconstructed ballet. The program also includes a recorded interview with Rambert, in which she discusses the creation of the ballet.
