In 1976, Silvia Palacios Whitman first presented Clear View (One Place at a Time) at The Kitchen. The program consisted of eight short pieces, performed by Whitman herself, fellow dancers, a dozen child and adult performers, and music by Terry Riley. The performance emphasized everyday movements with pieces ranging from performers crushing a huge paper cigar against a wall to a small child practicing a marching routine. The use of large scale props, simple movements, stillness and silence, was typical of choreography by Palacios Whitman.
