Video Work: Documentation of "Demon" (1972)

Audio/Visual

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.
