Video Short: Great Performances: A New Way to Film the Arts

Director Don Mischer worked on early Great Performances dance shows featuring Mikhail Baryshnikov, Twyla Tharp, Gregory Hines and Savion Glover. Mischer's approach differed from how dance had been televised in the past. "The way that dance was shot on television was straight-in, theatrically, and a good director would never cut off a finger or cut off a toe...Baryshnikov by Tharp became more about how do we use the medium to create its own emotions."
