The Berlin-based theatre and intervention label Rimini Protokoll is currently developing a technical and performative strategy that could be described as a heterotopic form of cinema, or a multi-player 3D-videogame for 12 users. With this workshop, they want to discuss and develop these strategies with a group of artists who are interested in new forms of performance interactions for active audience.
Each participant will be given an iPod to shoot a short walk telling a story. Simultaneously the audience follows step by step, frame by frame, the story that has been filmed in the very same place by someone else. As the spectators start to trace the film, a multiple story unfolds. The twelve short movies guide the audience and transform them both into actors and spectators. Pre-recorded past turns into present and questions what could be a form of interactive cinema, where "3D" is not just seen, but also touched, heard, smelled and used.
Helgard Haug, Stefan Kaegi and Daniel Wetzel work together under the name of Rimini Protokoll.
They are recognized as being among the leaders and creators of the theatre movement known as "Reality Trend" (Theater der Zeit), which has exerted a powerful influence on the alternative theatre scene. Each project begins with a concrete situation in a specific place and is then developed through an intense exploratory process. They have attracted international attention with their dramatic works, which take place in that colourful zone between reality and fiction.
Since 2004 they are artists in residence at Hebbel am Ufer (HAU) Berlin.
Cifas (suite...) offers contemporary artists to illustrate its communication.
