VHS Copy: Greek TV News Feature on "Mythos Oedipus" (Athens, 1985) and Documentation of Performance (New York, 1985)


Recording of a TV news feature broadcast on ERT, entitled "American Troupe 'La MaMa'" ("ΑΜΕΡΙΚΑΝΙΚΟΣ ΘΙΑΣΟΣ 'ΛΑ ΜΑΜΑ'"), reporting on the Great Jones Repertory Company's presentation of Ellen Stewart's Mythos Oedipus in Athens. Includes interviews with Stewart and Min Tanaka, as well as unique footage of the show itself. The interviews are conducted in English, but the segment is narrated in Greek, so that spoken Greek translations make it difficult to understand the English. The news feature is followed by video of a 1985 performance in the La MaMa Annex.
