Allan Kaprow

18 Happenings in 6 Parts

Fall, 1959

The performance consisted of series of 18 individual happenings - one per room for all six parts. In some parts, performers, dressed in street clothes, simply walked slowly into a room and performed a series of choreographed stiff movements. In other parts, oranges were squeezed by a solemn-faced girl into 12 individual glasses and drank one at a time.  Another happening consisted of a man painting on a canvas, facing apart from the "audience" in his room.  All performances were accompanied by mechanized music at odd intervals and various lighting changes.
