Men, please step forward!

By Helgard Haug / Daniel Wetzel

The director of Germany’s first extramarital affair agency sits on the revolving stage of the Züricher Schauspielhaus and arranges erotic relationships from there as a “social (welfare) institution”.

Rita sits on the empty stage of the Schauspielhaus and works – explains the terms and conditions of business, answers questions about types of women and in her breaks formulates her ideas about theatre. All the while she is being turned around on a hand-operated revolving stage by 2 men.
