The video consists of one unedited version of the reading, lasting approximately 58 minutes, followed by two edited versions of the tape, each running about 27 minutes.
   Videotaped at the Hole in the Wall nightclub, Austin, Texas, summer 1978.
   Performed in German, with some passages in English.

I’m sure that your local library could get these via Inter-Library Loan if you’re really interested.

In 2020, I translated a quite weird piece of German literature by Heiner Müller, called "Hamletmachine".

During the year, I recorded an audio version of it which you can listen to right here:
