Winners of various international and German theatre awards , including the German national theatre Faust award, the European theatre award “for new theater forms” and the Silver Lion at the Venice Biennale for performing arts.
Rimini Protokoll may well be classified as a company that dictates a new future for theatre, creating performances that take audiences outside theater halls. Providing a mix of different theatrical forms that incorporate sociology, mathematics, geopolitics and IT into their texture, they manage to talk with their audience about important social issues. Their work is focused on developing theatrical instruments capable of serious depictions of various facets of our lives. Their Remote X performance has been nominated for the Golden Mask, the chief Russian theatre award, and was successfully shown at Avignon Theater festival.
«Remote is about sensory perceptions. It may be compared to meditation, or to the first journey by plane. Remote Helsinki may answer many inner questions of any city-dweller: it is about your town, your way and your boundaries of social behavior. Together with Rimini Protokoll, we have created a great portrait of the city, and I’m happy that the result is not a dull portrait but rather a three-dimensional mosaic to which every participant may add a personal element, as well as take something for themselves.»
