ALIVE FROM OFF CENTER: HOUSE OF TRES / IT DOESN'T WAIT (TV)

Summary

One in this series of arts programs featuring the work of leading avant-garde artists in video, music, dance, theater, and film. The first half of this program investigates the club scene and the types of music and dance associated with it. Various unidentified disc jockeys discuss house music and the development of hip hop and voguing while dancers demonstrate their techniques. In addition, a variety of drag queens participate in a voguing ball, a competition in which the men present exaggerated versions of fashion models. In the program's second half, members of The Doug Elkins Dance Company dance along the streets of New York City, seemingly oblivious to the traffic and pedestrians around them.

(Series title varies; as above, 1985-1991; as "Alive TV," 1992 onward.)

Cataloging of this program was made possible by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, 1999.
