White Oak Dance Project : Waiting for the Sunrise performance (different camera angle), BBC Metro TV( Visual )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Mikhail Baryshnikov and White Oak Dance Project perform "Waiting for the Sunrise". Filmed by Metro TV, the visuals begin after the dance piece has begun and many sections are cut short or begin abruptly. The overhead angle affords fine close-ups on facial expression but excludes other performers who fall out of frame. Time code runs throughout. The audience reacts enthusiastically to the 'Knife Dance' section, particularly cheering Rob Besserer
White Oak Dance Project : Japan tour Program B( Visual )

1 edition published in 1992 in Japanese and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Mikhail Baryshnikov and White Oak Dance Project dance in "Canonic 3/4 Studies", "Punch and Judy Get a Divorce" and "Waiting for the Sunrise". Solo performances include Baryshnikov in "Ten Suggestions" and Nancy Colahan in "Harmonica Breakdown". In a remarkable 'first', perhaps tied to the end of this particular tour, the company performs a post-curtain call encore. After reprising the final two segments of "Waiting for the Sunrise", streamers and confetti rain down from the ceiling and over the dancers. The audience is delightfully receptive to the encore and this celebratory atmosphere

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Mikhail Baryshnikov and White Oak Dance Project in rehearsal. This is a single take of the company rehearsing "A Lake" at White Oak Plantation. There is a bit of camera wobble at 6:00 as the videographer changes position; the camera pans away from the company at one point to reveal a still photographer among the viewers. Audible flutter and wow in the Haydn track, possibly from the rehearsal recording; a baby's voice is perfectly clear at 9:00. Poor visual quality

Visual quality poor, with most of the footage in long shots. White Oak Plantation served as a 'home base' for the company
