Remote Wuppertal – a project by Rimini Protokoll
A group of 50 headphone-wearing people sets off into the city – guided by a synthetic voice like the ones in our satnavs. As part of this 2-hour collective audio performance, you will explore the city of Wuppertal in a unique way. Along the way, binaural recordings and film scores provide a soundtrack for the urban landscape. From the outside, the group’s progress through the city looks like a precisely timed choreography. From the inside, it feels more and more like a collective film. With every step, the computerised voice sounds more familiar. But who is speaking? Who are we following?
Entitled Remote Wuppertal, it explores bodies, movements and axes in the city that con-nect the Schauspielhaus and future Pina Bausch Centre with different spaces in Wuppertal. Remote Wuppertal questions artificial intelligence, big data and our own predictability.
The artist collective Rimini Protokoll invites citizens on a group audio tour developed by Stefan Kaegi and directed by Jörg Karrenbauer with a Sounddesign by Nikolas Neecke. Remote X tours from city to city like a mobile laboratory, having previously visited Lisbon, London, New York, Zurich, Vienna and many others.
Starting out at the Sonnborn Protestant Cemetery, Remote Wuppertal connects the future Pina Bausch Centre with many other places in Wuppertal.
