HOME VISIT EUROPEimmersive performance-quest
A brand new project realized by one of the most prominent theatre companies in the world. Rimini Protokoll are famous for clashing private with political, social with the intimate. Their project Remote Moscow invited members of the audience to get to know the city in a totally different way – through tiny lanes and side alleys, little shops, cemeteries and parking spaces. Their new project Home Visit Europe once again offers the audience to become both participants and performers at the same time. Any most ordinary Moscow apartment can become a set for this performance – the audience members will go and visit the hosts and as their guests will discuss geopolitics, immigration issues, as well as their own salary. It is all just the way it always is when people invite each other for a dinner and a catch up. Amongst our hosts there will be some most ordinary people living in Moscow, but also celebrated actors, theatre directors and art directors of the Territory Festival – Chulpan Khamatova and Roman Dolzhansky.
German Theatre Company, run by Stefan Kaegi, Daniel Wetzel and Helgard Haug. All three studied at the Institute for Applied Theatre Studies of the University of Giessen.
