Banned by censors, lauded by Sigmund Freud, now performed live by Justus Neumann at the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia
FREE Special Fringe Event to the 2012 Audi Festival of German Films
Celebrated Austrian performer, Justus Neumannwill perform a theatrical reading of exerpts from the controversial play ‘Der Reigen/La Ronde’by Arthur Schnitzler on May 5.
Originally banned in 1904, the play explores transgressions between classes before and after a sexual encounter.
This is a rare opportunity to experience the play which has elicited violent critical and popular reactions since its release; the performance by a native German speaker is intended to fully capture the force of the play as it was intended.
Presented by the Austrian Embassy, Canberra, the Goethe Institute and the National Film and Sound Archive
