Summary
Rehearsal of the male dancer's choreography for the Thursday section of the ballet. The six women in this section do not appear on this recording. The tape begins with a man rehearsing segments of the choreography to directions from off-camera by Michael Somes of the Royal Ballet (ca. 2 1/2 min.). Gary Chryst then dances the choreography in full, to piano accompaniment (ca. 5 min.). A third man, shadowed by two others who appear intermittently on camera, repeats the choreography (ca. 5 min.).
