Video Work: Documentation of "Renard" (1972)

Description: This video documents the ETC Company’s 1972 La MaMa Experimental Theatre Club production of Igor Stravinsky’s "Renard" (1917), as adapted by Wilford Leach and John Braswell. The piece, a “burlesque to be sung and played” that follows the adventures of Renard the fox as he attempts to catch and eat a rooster, was part of the ETC Company’s first 5-Play Repertory. This Repertory also featured ”Carmilla,” “Gertrude,” “The Only Jealousy of Emer,” and “Demon.” This video was originally shot using a Portapak camera.

Video documentation of earlier and later productions of “Renard” at La MaMa is contained on Reel B5a (1970b) and Reel C11 (1973) in La MaMa’s collection.
