Melody Excerpt was filmed by Cynthia Hampton outdoors at C.W. Post College in Long Island, July 1978. Appearing in the film: dancers Lucinda Childs, Cynthia Hedstrom, Daniel McCusker, Judy Padow, and Andé Peck. Hedstrom and Padow were members of the dance faculty at that time. This view of the dance from above shows the pathways as illustrated in the scores for Melody Excerpt.The dancers are positioned so that “downstage” is oriented towards the top of the screen. (Downstage is the area of a stage that is closest to the audience.) Multiple takes are represented in this footage. Courtesy of Lucinda Childs.
