Notes

Stills
"The red-light district of Vienna is one big bondage club in Roxana Silbert’s blackly droll and provocative new production of Measure for Measure. Half-naked men groan orgasmically as they tweak their nipple-clamps, or suffocate in elaborate gas masks or get whipped by ooh-la-la maids in front of a huge kinky curtain of leather tassels bathed in pink neon."
[Paul Taylor, The Independent, 24 November 2011].
