Shed Your Skin Or Die (1977)

(the video)

The video evolved out of the performance of the same name. While the performance was a collaboration with M.J. Kwan, the video was a solo project, created from sections of the performance  and augmented with new material.  Portions of the live performance were refined and video taped.  Several scenes of/with M.J.  shot for the performance were edited into the video.  Also, the audio that accompanies the pelican dives was extracted from video segments of MJ performing a certain water ballet dive that had been used in the performance.
