Summary
Mikhail Baryshnikov and White Oak Dance Project perform in London. Baryshnikov solos in "Three Russian Preludes" and "Chaconne", then joins the company in "What A Beauty!". Extremely poor visual quality, recorded entirely in long shots; audio muffled, with the first work silent until approximately 2:26 into the recording. Individual dancers, facial expressions hard to discern through 'foggy' quality of recording.
