Video Work: Documentation of "Demon" (1972)


This video documents the ETC Company’s 1972 production of “Demon” at La MaMa Experimental Theatre Club. The play is Wilford Leach and John Braswell’s adaptation of the 14th-century Noh play “Aya No Tsuzumi” (likely authored by Seami Motokiyo) and was part of the ETC Company’s first 5-Play Repertory. This Repertory also featured ”Carmilla,” “Gertrude,” “The Only Jealousy of Emer,” and “Renard.” This video was originally shot using a Portapak camera.

Video documentation of a 1973 production of “Demon” at La MaMa is contained on Reel C10 in La MaMa’s collection.
