This movie documentation is of the Eglantine Video that played in the background during the live performance of this multimedia work.

Eglantine (woman in black) is based on the mystery of roses. The character, Eglantine and the rose are one in the same. When the rose is manipulated, so is Eglantine. The work symbolizes a loss of purity, but always with the hope and knowledge that for each death there is a renewal.

Eglantine was created and performed by Elizabeth Miklavcic, with videography and editing by Jimmy Miklavcic, wig by Tamara Cobus, and skirt design by Sarah Hudelson. The video also featured company dancers Angie Head, Chara Huckins, Sarah Hudelson and Michael Larkin.

Eglantine was performed at the Salt Lake Art Center, as part of Elizabeth's nomination for the Utah Arts Council's 1991-1992 Visual Artist Fellowship Competition, View of Nine. Other nominees for that year included Allen Bishop, Anna Campbell Bliss, Susan Cutter, Mary Fish, Susan Fleming, Michael Plyler, Stephen A. Goldsmith and Randall Lake.
