James Xavier Nash: Black dance
Documentary on Xavier Nash, an affiliate of Anna Halprin who taught street dance to students from a wide variety of backgrounds in an upstairs dance studio in the Fillmore District of San Francisco in the 1970s. Produced by First Generation (1974 -1980), a partnership between Dede Tisone Bartels, Betty Estersohn, and Joan Valdes, who were young teachers and artists in the San Francisco Bay Area of the 1960s and 70s. It was a vibrant and creative art community that was pushing the boundaries and the definition of art. The common denominator between the three was an interest in the possibilities of the new technology of video to document the work of people who created California and Bay Area history.
