About the event

When people tell their own stories on stage, where are the boundaries between theater, reality, documentary, participation, and fiction? Berlin-based theater group Rimini Protokoll creates participatory and documentary theater experiences that explore topics such as Egyptian muezzin resisting the consolidation of their profession (Radio Muezzin), Athenians grappling with the Greek economic crisis (Prometheus in Athens), and jet-setting children of corporate executives who feel most at home while in transit (Airport Kids).

An afternoon screening of recent major works (Campaign Wallenstein, Remote Berlin, and 100% Melbourne) will be followed by an evening conversation between the members of Rimini Protokoll and Gideon Lester (Director of Theatre Programs, Bard College; Co-Curator, Crossing the Line Festival), moderated by Frank Hentschker (Martin E. Segal Theatre Center).
