Future Reincarnation – Your Gazes Extend the Dead's Living Memories
What does Death look like in the 21st century?
Is it to stop updating Facebook?
Is it for a stranger to pick up the number of a mobile?
Or is it a disabled body remaining alive on machines?
As the border between life and death becomes blurring,
How are we going to imagine our own death in advance when we are still alive?
Rimini Protokoll, the theater company known for its capability of turning public spaces into intimate theaters, will lead audiences to a no-man's zone where life meets death. Spectators enter eight immersive spaces and spend eight minutes in each of the spaces. With the time counting down, objects, voices, and images guide them to the point where the baton is passed from generation to generation and to witness the eight persons' final farewell. A Turkish man organized the return of his body to his hometown in Istanbul; a woman donated all her properties to establish a foundation
for African arts; a scientist analyzed death from the scientific perspective...and you? How will you say...? Life is extended with memories, while death arrives prematurely with imagination. Perhaps what scares us the most is not death itself but instead being forgotten!
◎ Duration: Approx. 90 minutes, without intermission.
◎ Audience can move around while watching. There is no fixed seating arrangement.
◎ Performed in French, German and English with Chinese Surtitles.
