Rimini Protokoll (Haug / Kaegi / Wetzel)

In the face of a global crisis, the “Conference of the Absent” is about global cooperation. Nevertheless, this time the crisis is being dealt with locally - on behalf of the world: at a conference that no one needs to book a flight or mount a train for. The invited experts and speakers do not appear physically, but are represented by local people who only receive their script at the beginning of their presentation.

Completely without CO2 emissions and bad Skype or Zoom connections, but with all the performative means of the theatre, the contributions and contradicting theses on the consequences of globalization will be delivered into the theatre space – and settle them within it. The advantage of not being there – not having to be everywhere at all – becomes a joint play that can be experienced anew every evening.

At the centre of “Conference of the Absent” there are people who become carriers of ideas and playfully acquire both biographies of experts as well as their thoughts. In this way, absence becomes an added value because it creates space for new enrollments and unexpected perspectives.
