Pass The Blutwurst, Bitte

John Kelly

Vienna, at the turn of the century. Egon Schiele is a painter, despairing, immensely talented, who wants to love, to live.


He loves, and lives. Accused of pornography and thrown in jail, he dies at the age of 28. His short life pays the price of the dazzling flashes of his art. United States, end of the century. John Kelly, a singer, dancer and actor, pays tribute to Egon Schiele, exploring his paintings and bringing to life what led to them, what they led to. Beyond the story of a painter, he shows us the process of creation, of what it costs the creator, what it gives to the world. The harsh beauty of things.


Conceived, directed and choreographed by John Kelly
