Five people from Zurich aged 65 and over enter the stage and begin to talk about their relationship life: from the first infatuation to the first heartbreak, unfulfilled longings, exciting affairs and the death of loved ones. Everything in turn, alternately and year by year. Childhood in the 40s and 50s, the pressure on unmarried couples, the sexual revolution at the end of the 60s, the taboo of being homosexual, coming out, great love, unsatisfying sex... Story after story, a social panorama of their time and a history of our city emerges.
In our youth-fixated society, "All the Sex I've Ever Had" shifts the focus to the oldest among us. Filled with joy and tragedy, this evening shows how much younger generations can learn from their predecessors and that aging can also mean walking through this world with an open mind and curiosity.
The successful format of the Canadian theater group Mammalian Diving Reflex has been seen in many theaters around the world: Austin, Glasgow, Helsinki, Ljubljana, Portland, Prague, Taipei, Singapore, Vienna or even the Sydney Opera House. Now the exciting journey through the decades starts in Zurich!
Content Awareness: This evening includes sexual experiences in the most diverse facets. Abuse and violence will also be addressed.
