The Amsterdam-based avant-garde theater collective Dood Paard, working with no director or set designer, presents a provocative staging of Arthur Schnitzler's seminal text Reigen (Full Circle, 1897). Banned for more than 20 years, except for one unauthorized performance in Budapest in 1912, this scandalous play of love and lust assembles ten consummate dialogues between a motley collection of characters, all with the same goal: sex.
