If you ask how can one stage living ready-mades and transplant experts onto stages, as well as into the grey-zone between reality and fiction, using documentary material and theatrical interventions? Stefan Kaegi will show and comment on short videos that are recent productions of Rimini Protokoll, with Kazakhstani oil-drillers, 50 remote controlled spectators, 100 statistically chosen Berliners, as well as Indian call-centre operators.

Curator: Stefan Kaegi
Type: Talk
Language: English

Stefan Kaegi produces documentary theatre plays and works for public spaces. He is currently adapting an audio tour for 50 headphones entitled ‘Remote X’ for cities such as Santiago and Moscow. Based in Berlin, Kaegi co-produces works with Helgard Haug and Daniel Wetzel under the label Rimini Protokoll. Using research, public auditions, and conceptual processes, they give voice to “experts”, who are not trained actors but have something to tell.
