(From Breitbart, 8/21)

Christoph Schlingensief, one of Germany's most provocative theatre directors, died of lung cancer on Saturday, organisers of the Ruhr Triennale festival said. He was 49.

Schlingensief, a director from Berlin's Volksbuhne theatre, was due to present his latest production "S.M.A.S.H." at the festival, but had cancelled the performances in July due to his illness.
