Video Work: Interviews and B-roll of AITE on Tour at Rough Rock School (1973)


This video documents the American Indian Theatre Ensemble (AITE) on tour at Rough Rock Demonstration School in Chinle, Arizona, in 1973. Rough footage from the tour has been edited to create this video, which opens with a handwritten title reading “La MaMa presents the American Indian Theatre Ensemble at Rough Rock Demonstration School” and closes with another handwritten title, reading “this videotape was produced under the auspices of the N.I.E.A. [National Indian Education Association] Library Project”. The video consists primarily of an interview, edited with B-roll of the ensemble rehearsing and an audience gathering before a production. This video was originally shot using a Portapak camera.
