«Just Call Me God: A dictator's final speech»

After their prize-winning psychological portraits of the serial killer Jack Unterweger and the womaniser Giacomo Casanova, the latest project of Michael Sturminger and John Malkovich is the highly topical Gesamtkunstwerk, combining theatre, film and music, entitled «Just Call Me God». The piece is characterised by its fearless exploration of human limits and of the causes and mechanisms of tyranny, as Martin Haselböck and John Malkovich look into the dark soul of the dictator. When the charismatic Hollywood star meets the queen of instruments, the organ, the remarkable encounter is not only accompanied by Martin Haselböck’s own special compositions, but also organ works by Johann Sebastian Bach, César Franck, Charles-Marie Widor, Olivier Messiaen and György Ligeti.
