Helgard Haug (Berlin): Rimini Protokoll Theatre Workshop – Day 1

April 2, 12:00pm - 1:15pm
Mānoa Campus, iLab

Who is Performing? Working with "Real People" –––

“They were real people.” Anyone who has seen a Rimini Protokoll piece for the first time and tells other people about it, will probably not be able to avoid using this sentence if she/he wants to explain what is unique about the group’s approach. The bafflement that all too often shows on the face of the listeners, reveals that such a succinct assertion is not especially revealing. Don’t you always see real people in the theatre? Is a repertory actor somehow a fake person? Is not the performer’s identity and physicality inextricably linked to their performance? ––– On this first day of the workshop we will focus on the question who the protagonists of Rimini Protokoll productions are.
