Does anyone know if there is a complete video version of the above? I have only seen glimpes of it in the movie "Suzanne Farrell - elusive muse", and I must say that my curiosity was piqued.

I don't believe it's in commercial relase. Documentary films of it do exist, as does the rehearsal footage thatwas used in elusive muse.

You're just going to have to come back and visit NYC, Silvy.

Yes, I guess I shall have to return to NYC... I miss it so much. But for the time being, I guess I shall have to make do with Buenos Aires :wink:

Is "Movements" still danced nowadays?

Next week!

Two links: A discussion from a performance in 2001.

An article in Dance View regarding Farrell coaching the ballet for her own group that incorporated some of those observations.

NYC, or maybe better yet, Washington, D.C., again some day, as we might infer from the second item.

From what I saw; I'd suggest seeing it in New York. Farrell coached it well, but she does not have the cast.
