Peter Moore’s film Stockhausen’s Originale: Doubletakes documents the 1964 U.S. premiere production of Originale, a happening by German composer Karlheinz Stockhausen. It was filmed during two performances at Judson Hall in New York, produced by Norman Seaman and Charlotte Moorman. These took place as part of the 2nd Annual New York Avant Garde Festival. The stage production was directed by Allan Kaprow, with performers including Nam June Paik, Moorman, Jackson Mac Low, and Allen Ginsberg, among many others. (1964/94, 30 min, 16mm, b&w)
In this special screening of the film, Barbara Moore, director of the Peter Moore Archive, will offer an ‘expanded’ version, sharing a host of additional still images that provide glimpses into dimensions of the production unseen in the film itself. Woven together with her memories and observations of the production and the circumstances surrounding it, her presentation will provide a much fuller picture of ORIGINALE than ever before.
