(November 2018) The circular motion and fluctuation of desire, power, ambition and endless search for the unattainable love we all crave for is explored by an international cast of 8 multi-skilled performers. Together they create a station drama inspired by Arthur Schnitzler’s “Reigen” (La Ronde). A series of encounters strung together depicts a society locked in a cycle. A timeless investigation of sexual pulsions and human nature.
“This city is no place for love. The people are too fragile to be genuine, too shrewd to be open. One becomes accustomed to immerse oneself in so many vain interests and ultimately lose sight of what is real.” Heinrich von Kleist, 1800.
