Background:
This work was broadcast as an episode of "Dance for Camera" with "District 1." However, no tape of the completed episode exists.

Scope:
Includes a 2" master, Betacam SP preservation master, and VHS screening copy of the completed work. A 2" reel of original footage also exists. These tapes were originally labeled "Budde." Color slides and black-and-white photographic prints showing dancers exist. Some may have been used in the actual production of the work. One folder contains press releases, production invoices and notes, purchase orders, expense reports, correspondence, newspaper articles, and dance company information.

A series of still images of dancers performing a solo, duet, trio, and quartet are edited together to create the suggestion of movement. John Budde provided the concept and the photography and Elizabeth Keene provided the choreography.

An ambient score by composer Julie Weber accompanies the piece.
