In this fully immersive experience, audiences wander the Egyptian Wing of the museum attempting to uncover international intelligence networks. Where will the mission take you? Who can be trusted? And what happens when the game is over? And is it a game at all? Rimini Protokoll is comprised of theater makers Helgard Kim Haug, Stefan Kaegi, and Daniel Wetzel, who have been working collaboratively since 2000. Their stage productions, sound and radio plays, films, and installations deal with the theatrical elements of our reality.
See it if you like the Brooklyn Museum & are willing to follow in paranoid directions like see who is noticing you, walk in circles, write your fears.
Don't see it if you object to 90 minutes in headphones that are subject to frequant tech issues. Entering required standing on 3 lines for over 30 minutes.
See it if you like experimental or self-guided theater, esp that which tries to use technology in new & different ways. You like wandering in museums.
Don't see it if you're expecting a cohesive story or journey, want to interact w/others (it's more a solo experience), or are bothered by technical glitches
See it if you like immersive/participatory theater, especially formally distinctive work; you have a strong interest in intelligence/espionage.
Don't see it if you don't like theater in which actors aren't performing for you; you don't have the patience for technical bugs now and then.
See it if you've never been to something like this (experiential theatre)
Don't see it if you have been to any experiential theatre as this just doesn't cut it - quite disappointing
