What is true about the fear that PR strategists and privately funded counseling and solicitor teams will take control over an increasingly globalized society from the hands of politicians? Does the state in its neoliberal form consist only of formal but weak pods? Is democracy just a name for something that we do not want anymore – even though we would like it?
In the four theater productions presented here, State 1-4 (“Top Secret International”, “Social Model Large Construction Site”, “Dreaming Collective, Growing Sheep” and “World State Davos”), Rimini Protokoll shows interactive scenic results of a research trip on the margins of the democratically legitimated state , Diary entries and snapshots provide insights into the production process.
Sociological, philosophical, media-scientific and political essays (by Lukas Bärfuss, Timon Beyes, Mathias Fuchs, Gabriela Muri Koller and others) provide contextual content and performance photos from unusual perspectives documenting the special ways in which the audience interacts.
