Dorian Gray has suddenly stopped aging. At the height of his fresh-faced beauty, he becomes a living painting, while his portrait in the attic undergoes a horrifying transformation with the passing of time. The consistently popular Victorian novel „Dorian Gray” is as topical as ever. The cult of eternal youth could not be better described, nor our Botox-smoothed faces better reflected, than in the polished surface of this linguistic masterpiece.

A new and atypical take on the famous novel by Oscar Wilde in a dynamic and haunting multimedia performance.
