Stockholmers own stories about desire that breaks limits takes place on stage in the newly-written documentary piece Stockholm Lust. Lennart Jähkel, Kajsa Ernst, Isabel Reboia and Lars Bringås stands for the conformation, directed by Andreas Kundler. First performance May 3 at 21:15 at Stockholm House of Culture & City Theatre.

Stockholm Lust contains authentic stories with Stockholmers. Amanda Glans have interviewed 30 people who shared their most intimate experiences of sexual encounters.

– What I discovered when I have done interviews is that people really want to talk about sex. Sexuality is very important and we choose different ways to set up sexuality in our lives. For many there is a criticism of civilization built into how their sex life looks like. Why should we be with a person for life, they think, and choose instead to their fantasies together, says Amanda Glans producer Storydox.

Of all interviewed has four been chosen as main stories. The theme of the basic stories is that there are obstacles in the way of the sexual encounter, but the urge is so strong that it makes you go over their own limits or the environment’s limits. To these basic stories have Tinder entered as a framework document.

On Tinder is it the opposite, there are no obstacles to sex – there are boundless normal. Online dating account for a large proportion of all relationships today. And it’s very not portrayed on stage, says director Andreas Kundler.

The performens gives in a late-night-show formats and is played at Café Klara evening hours.

– This is documentary theater that you can drink beer to. Bring a date or you may meet someone in the bar to go home with?, says director Andreas Kundler.
