Karlheinz Stockhausen’s Originale

Stuakhausen Event

Archived Event

No Longer Showing.

Fifty years after its storied New York premiere, the composer's response to the Happening gets a 21st–century staging, directed by Caden Manson and Jemma Nelson (Big Art Group), with a creative team featuring filmmaker A.L. Steiner and sound projectionist Joe Drew. The cast of "Originals"—the word is used to imply a simultaneous sense of authenticity and eccentricity—describes a community of contemporary performance makers, musicians, and artists, whose actions are organized by Stockhausen's score and accompanied by noted electroacoustic compositions such as Kontakte. Curated by Nick Hallett for Darmstadt: Essential Repertoire. Co-produced by The Kitchen and Goethe-Institut.

On the afternoon of November 8, the Goethe-Institut will also host A 21st Century Originale, a panel discussion with Andrew Lampert (artist and filmmaker, Anthology Film Archives) Sophie Landres, (art history, Stony Brook University), Alexandro Segade (participating artist, member of My Barbarian and Courtesy the Artist) and AK Burns (artist).
