rimini protokoll: Call Cutta in a Box: An Intercontinental Phone Play
IDS Tower, 40th Floor minneapolis – January 8 – 31, 2010 (walker art center)
“A phone is ringing in an empty office in Minneapolis . . . it’s for you. Answer it and begin your personal performance experience that crosses continents, dissolves borders between audience and performer, and challenges cultural expectations. During the hour-long conversation with a call-center agent in India, everyday life is turned into theater, surprises are revealed, and our overly connected world is made more human. The German collective Rimini Protokoll has created “a thrillingly intimate production, which asks us to make the decision to be an audience member in an unusually active way” (Time Out New York).”
