Video Work: Documentation of "Carmilla" (1976)

Description: This video documents the ETC Company’s 1976 production of "Carmilla” at La MaMa Experimental Theatre Club. The play is Wilford Leach and John Braswell’s adaptation of Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu’s 19th century Gothic vampire novella, with musical direction by Zizi Mueller. The video was originally shot using a Portapak camera, and camera originals are spread across two separate half-inch open reels (numbered F13 and F14 in La MaMa's collection).

Video documentation of earlier productions of “Carmilla” at La MaMa is contained on Reels B3a, B3b, and B23 (1971), Reels B3, B4, and B59b (1972), and Reels C6 and C7 (1973) in La MaMa’s collection.
