I met up with the cast of Reigen at Peterhouse for a quick little publicity photoshoot. Reigen is written by Arthur Schnitzler and updated and directed by Ada Günther.
A new translation of this ‘scandal play’ from 1903 unveils intimate conversations between people before and after they have sex. A prostitute meets a soldier on the street and they have sex on a bench. In the next scene, the soldier seduces a housemaid, and so on until in the final scene, a noble Count meets with the prostitute and everything goes full circle.

“Just come a bit closer. I won’t bite.”
“When will I see you again?”
“I worship you, Emma.”
“Come on, stay, we might be dead by tomorrow!”
“Oh god, men are terrible. I expect you do the same with everyone.”
For the last photo the writer and director Ada Günther stepped in front of the camera embraced by the hands of her cast.
