FOCUS HUMAN

Last focus of the season, HUMAN offers performances that address the times of today by placing man and his rights, his strengths, his contradictions and sufferings at the centre. After the short century, which showed the brutality of humanity and also the ability to get involved again, what have we become? Who do we want to be?

Hobsbawn said that the 1900s had ended in a global disorder of an unclear nature and without a clear mechanism to end or control it. Are we facing the new twenties, with the naïve and glitzy consciousness of what is happening around us?

Will the homo sapiens, well defined and described by Harari, be able to make sense of the world he created? And understand global developments and distinguish the mistake from what is correct?

CONVENTION
At the end of not only the year but also of the three-year period and of a path that until today has led us to invite the most representative names of that genre defined Theatre of reality, we will dedicate two days to a convention of reflection and comparison on what future prospects they are outlined in the relationship and in the action of the theatre on reality.
An important opportunity to take stock of the current situation in Europe but also to open up new questions and questions. For the occasion, some of the artists hosted over the years and the operators and critics most sensitive to the topic will be invited.

FOCUS #2
• SOCIETY •

Already in the 1930s, Keyens sustained that the true challenge that needs to be overcome is the reconnection of economy and society in an intelligent and non regressive manner.

After a century and another devastating economic crisis, it is understandable to wonder if a mediation between the modernizing push of progress and the needs of society is still possible.

The populist movements of today – whether guided from above or born spontaneously from the bottom – embody a diffused indisposition that contests blocked social hierarchies, as well as stationary social elevators, concentration of richness that is increasingly evident and that no longer allows for the possibility of the acquisition of well being and security in the same way it was assured in the past.

Nonetheless in a panorama so desolating and confused, the voices of those reclaiming the humanistic side of the economy, a social science that needs to occupy itself with the wellbeing of man in the “interest of stability and social justice”, are not missing.

The focus crosses various visions – ironic, disillusioned, worried – of today’s society, that is founded on economy and in which you’ll drown.

FOCUS #3
• ECOLOGY •

Climate change, green economy, ecological economics…

The UN defines the green economy as a real perspective. A perspective for which a growth of income and employment are driven by investments whose goal is to reduce pollution, increase renewable energy, make resources more efficient and avoid the loss of biodiversity.

Climate change is a fact: the temperatures are increasing, the precipitation pattern is changing, the ice and snow are melting and the average sea level is rising globally.

Nonetheless the differences towards that science that Darwin referred to as “economy of nature” and that in 1866 was given the name of ecology, are still too many.

Although scientists tell us that we have entered in a so called time of “Anthropocene”, in which the terrestrial environment is strongly conditioned from the effects of human actions, we assist to a global schizophrenia. On one side political, social and economic forecasts are predicting devastating news about the planet’s future, supported by protectionist initiatives, nationalistic closures, and the discussion of the 2015 Paris agreements. On the other hand the birth of transnational movements are in favor of the environment, and new generations are aware of the risks and especially the development of economic investments in energetic camp that let us hope that the green economy will not only remain a dream.

Con la serie Stato 1-4 (di cui questo è il terzo episodio), Rimini Protokoll indaga ciò che oggi sfugge all’organizzazione e al controllo dello stato-nazione contemporaneo. Guarda all’essenza di quei poteri la cui separazione era intesa come principale meccanismo di controllo e monitoraggio delle strutture statali. Quanto questi poteri sono ancor in grado di regolare gli impeti decisivi per il cambiamento sociale odierno?

Benvenuti nell’anno 2048. L’organizzazione dell’umanità è finalmente del tutto digitalizzata. Non c’è più violenza. IRIS controlla le nostre armi. Non ci sono più incidenti stradali, perché IRIS controlla il traffico. La partecipazione democratica avviene tramite interazioni digitali. Ciò che clicchi è ciò che voti. IRIS ne misura i risultati. La democrazia è diventata liquida ed è rimasta teatro – ogni spettacolo è una sessione laboratoriale per 120 spettatori nella nuvola. Equipaggiati di tablet programmati ad hoc, i partecipanti entrano in un processo di voto permanete, tutti connessi alla nuvola attraverso i loro dispositivi digitali. Il pubblico diventa il corpo risonante che proietta le dinamiche dello sciame tipiche della rete nello spazio teatrale. Le loro decisioni si trasformano in suono. I loro dati diventano nuvole digitali. Partendo da Atene, luogo in cui la democrazia è nata e sembra oggi aver fallito, Daniel Wetzel e Ioanna Valsamidou indagano potenzialità e pericoli della digitalizzazione per il processo democratico.

RIMINI PROTOKOLL è l’etichetta per i lavori di Helgard Haug, Stefan Kaegi e Daniel Wetzel, che dal 2000 costituiscono un collettivo di registi/autori e firmano le loro opere singolarmente, a due o a tre. Il loro lavoro indaga sistematicamente la realtà attraverso il teatro, utilizzando linguaggi innovativi che hanno di fatto rivoluzionato la scena Europea. Hanno portato in scena impresari di pompe funebri, uomini d’affari africani, programmatori specializzati e grandi investitori, politici ed economisti – i cosiddetti “esperti della realtà” – a volte anche tutti insieme. Ha organizzato passeggiate urbane guidate da un navigatore elettronico, visite a domicilio nelle case, rappresentazioni statistiche in scena delle maggior città del mondo, umanoidi meccanici protagonisti del palco. Sono stati invitati innumerevoli volte al Berliner Theatertreffen e hanno vinto innumerevoli premi (il Leone d’Argento alla Biennale di Venezia, il premio tedesco Der Faust, il riconoscimento come miglior Radiodramma dell’Associazione Ciechi di Guerra tedeschi – il premio per radiodramma più importante in Germania, il Premio Teatrale Europeo, solo per citarne alcuni). Si può ben dire che da metà degli anni 2000 in poi si deve parlare del teatro d’avanguardia prima e dopo i Rimini Protokoll.

FOCUS #1
• POLITICS •

Who wants to be a politician needs to venture into the world.

Opening the 2018 season with FOCUS POLITICS is foresight and provocation. The march elections speak for us. Politics permeate our social life in an intrusive way, contributing to spreading the alienation and detachment of the citizens. A question then arises: is democracy still a representation of the people’s power? In an everchanging society, is the power of democracy still effective? Is it still possible to talk about public and active agora?

Two famous international artists, that have already been guests of previous seasons at ZONA K, question these points. Roger Bernat presents PENDIENTE DE VOTO (HALTED VOTE). A show in which the participation of the public is required, in a political, humoristic reflection that faces the mechanisms of power in democracies and the totalitarian thinking in communities. A reflection on the word ‘citizenship’ and on participatory democracy, that can only make us think of the next political elections.

Yan Duyvendak, Nicolas Cilins & Nataly Sugnaux Hernandez (CH) with ACTIONS: a scenic device that seeks to create an ideal democratic meeting where refugees, political figures and volunteers can express themselves, with the goal of responding with effective and direct actions that can involve every single individual.

At last, the Italian section of ZONA K will host the revelation, artist Filippo M. Ceredi with BETWEEN ME AND P. , an intimate show made up of a documentary of a mysteriously missing brother. It is the action of one individual that creates a political by radically refusing to submit to the status quo of our society.
