Reigen — 2021

by Arthur Schnitzler,
Theater Krefeld & Mönchengladbach

"... the tremendous strangeness between man and woman became palpable ..." wrote Arthur Schnitzler on 5 February 1921, after attending rehearsals in Berlin for the world premiere of his "Reigen", written in 1896/97. The production hit the point that mattered to him. Schnitzler's ironic and melancholy "Reigen" is about ten encounters, ten transgressions between man and woman. It always revolves around "the one thing", there is always a "before" and a "after", people always part company afterwards - only to appear at someone else's house immediately afterwards. This is how the circle is composed: Each scene is connected to the next by a character. This also means that each person sleeps with two others.
