Legendary German auteur Ulrike Ottinger (MadamX, Exile Shanghai, etc.) returns to REDCAT with the screening of her cult film, Dorian Gray in the Mirror of the Yellow Press. Vibrant restored colors and breathtaking scene design encase the battle of seduction and power between two divas—the glamorous femme Delphine Seyrig as Frau Dr. Mabuse, the head of a media conglomerate, and the gender-bending Řber-model Veruschka von Lehndorff as the dandy Dorian Gray. As Mabuse wants to mold Dorian into a tabloid celebrity, they dive into the Berlin sexual underground haunted by creatures escaped from Fassbinder’s cinema (Magdalena Montezuma, Irm Hermann) or attend a performance of their own doubles in a pre-colonial operatic fantasy, interacting with a singer (Tabea Blumenschein) who will become Dorian’s unpredictable love object.
