Oskar Kokoschka, the brilliant painter and avant-gardist, descends into despair or even death in his cellar. The unrequited feelings for Alma Mahler push him to the brink of madness. Like Frankenstein, he creates a life-size doll of Alma to distract himself from his longings.
What can happen between a mad creator and his creation, especially when one begins to lose and the other – to gain subjectivity?

“The Oskar Kokoschka Horror Show” is about relationships, about femininity and masculinity, about desire, the need to possess, and a relationship that turns violent.
All this is compressed into a gothic corset, spiced up with glam rock make-up and seasoned with interpretations of Oskar Kokoschka’s paintings in the form of quasi-theatrical short films.
