Newsletter May 2016


Dear friends and companions,

in the next few weeks there are some events, to which I would like to invite you.

In Munich the festival „Vienna is different“ is running since the beginning of May. On this occasion a number of my plays are being presented there. At the closure of the festival on 19. June a public discussion will take place on the topic of Vienna’s culture and politics.

Also in Vienna some of quite diversive productions of mine will be shown. Here the chronological order:

Plakat Esperanza

„Esperanza – a partisan opera“,
16. June bis 26. June 2016, Vienna Woods, Vienna

At last Schlüterwerke are presenting a very special and unique Capriccio, which will take place – due to ist topic – in the middle of a forest.

Lydia Mischkulnig wrote a highly dramatic libretto to this partisan opera, which treats Europe’s way of facing historical events. While holding emotional speeches on the past, a mayor of a small villlage in Austria is confronted with an unpleasant reality. Magdalena Zenz wrote a radical and diversified music to this contemporary epic, which does not leave us any emergency exit to escape from reality.

We present „Esperanza – a partisan opera“ in the Vienna Woods.

Carmen: Ulla Pilz Mayor: Béla Bufe Martha: Magdalena Zenz Costumes: Ingrid Leibezeder Directed by Markus Kupferblum Production: Schlüterwerke

Opening night: 16. June 2016
Shows on: 17., 18., 19.,  23., 24., 25. and 26. June 2016
at 20h
Meeting point: Bus stop of 38A, „Parkplatz Cobenzl“
