As a part of the project “Home visit. Europe” they offer the audience to be both spectators and participants again. An ordinary krasnoyarsk flat will become a prop for the play, and spectators-participants will have to talk about what they would want to change in their lives, what their dream occupation would be and how much they would like to be earning, discuss geopolitics and the issue of immigration, just like it usually happens during a house party. Rimini Protokoll is one of the rare theater groups whose projects unite people, create a public. A public of thinking, compassionate, responsible and welcoming citizens.
“In other words, during the game a small European Union is created around the table, where you can feel yourself a country or its representative, join a coalition, express your views, vote for a treaty. A great space for improvisations opens up to you”
“When asking questions about beliefs and preferences, routine chores and pleasant memories that are connected to a place on the map, authors create a play about each participant - strangers to each other, who were seated at the negotiating table. That is how without any actors, light, changes of clothes and a curtain real theater is created, where on a piece of sweet dough fundamentals of democracy are being explained. And the majority of the participants, at least of our meeting, believe it”
“You won’t be able to find any actors here. Instead of them there is a cunningly arranged apparatus, which, from time to time, asks the kind of questions that even friends wouldn’t, and a group of people sitting around the table. In the next two hours they will learn much not only about others, but also about themselves”
