1 videocassette (U-matic, NTSC) (28 min.) : sd., col.; 3/4 in.
Dancers/choreographers Yvonne Meier and Jennifer Monson, and composer Guy Yarden discuss various aspects of dance and music improvisation, including its appeal to them, audience responses to improvised performances, the benefits of using silence and non-musical accompaniments in improvisation, and the qualities of a good improviser. They give some examples of structured improvisations, and participate in a brief in-studio improvisation. Performance excerpts include Monson's Blood on the saddle and Ignatius fruit, and Meier's Tell me, as well as improvisations by Meier to music by Yarden and Doug Henderson.
