Summary
A video recording of a studio rehearsal and stage performance of the Conversation of lovers duet from Acts of light. The studio rehearsal is a short segment at the very beginning and shows Peggy Lyman and Donlin Foreman dancing with Martha Graham coaching. There is also a brief explanation by Martha Graham regarding the title of the dance. The bulk of the recording is a stage performance at the White House performed by Christine Dakin and Donlin Foreman. At the very end, the camera pans to the audience which includes Martha Graham, President Ronald Reagan, and First Lady Nancy Reagan. This recording appears to be a short segment of a longer recording.
