Vernissage after the premiere: May 12, 2014 from 22:00
Stalin's Saint, a world premiere by Catherine Tiwald in the Drachengasse theatre, discusses the controversial exhibition "Caution-Religion," which took place in the Sakharov Center, Moscow, Russia in 2003.
The play takes place within the exhibition God Is Not Enough. That is, the works of art as well as sculptures, installations and video material along with the partition walls which surround them act as a stage set, but can be visited after the performance.
Consideration is given to both Russian artists and artists living abroad. Thus, the discussion of the original exhibition also connects critically with questions surrounding the international perception of Russia post Soviet Union, the state of freedom of expression in Russia today, but also the influence of the Orthodox Church.
