In der Weinbar im STÜH33 erwartet das Publikum ein kollektives und gleichzeitig intimes Hörerlebnis.

About the production

While sex might be omni-present in the media, honest conversations about the nature of our desire and our emotional experiences during sex are rare. Almost everyone lacks a vocabulary to describe what they feel when they are having sex. However, conversation artists Anna Papst and Mats Staub have gone in search of people who are trying to do this. During the course of their lives, all of them had to or wanted to re-learn how to have sex. Their touching and profound stories are presented in an edited and re-voiced form. A collective and yet intimate listening experience awaits the public in the wine bar at Stüh33. Visitors are served drinks and headphones. Everyone can choose from a variety of voices and stories and put together their own 4-course listening menu: would you rather listen to the female pensioner who never enjoyed sex in twenty-five years ofmmarriage and now leads a »decently dissolute« life? Or the young gay man who discovers physical love again after eight years of abstinence?

Anna Papst and Mats Staub both create interview-based work that lies in between theatre, exhibitions and literature. Intime Revolution (intimate revolution) is their first long-term project together – after the world premiere at the Ruhrtriennale, their collection of stories will continue to grow as it is presented at numerous other venues.

Produced by zwischen_produktionen.
Co-produced by Ruhrtriennale, Zürcher Theaterspektakel, Kaserne Basel, Künstlerhaus Mousonturm.

Call for Participation

Many people have answered the call and talked to Anna Papst and Mats Staub in interviews about their personal experiences. These form the main courses of an auditory four-course meal. For the last course, the »dessert«, they have prepared questions to which they would like many different answers. Participation is possible anonymously via this form:

Anonymity is very important for the project. Everything said and written will be linguistically condensed and re-recorded so that in the end it will not be recognisable who the contributions come from.
