The title Rijgen alludes to the famous classic about love and lust of Arthur Schnitzler, in which he depicts the sexual morals during the fin de siècle in ten scenes between couples. Inspired by Schnitzler, Robbrecht and Moeremans portray the darker corners of lust and love in our times.
In a series of scenes, in which they do not avoid taboos or forbidden forms of love, three performers imagine themselves in the roles of suffering lovers and merry pleasure seekers: the loneliness of the zoophile who desires his miniature horse as well as the cravings of the pedophile are portrayed in this play on contemporary love and lust. Whispered phantasies and painful confessions bring a flush on your cheeks.
"In addition to being a particularly funny play, 'Rijgen' is also lived through and humane."Het Nieuwsblad ****
