Rimini Protokoll – Daniel Wetzel & Helgard Haug

Prometheus in Athens

Dissolving the boundaries between reality and myth, the pioneering documentary theatre group Rimini Protokoll explores here the effects ancient tragedy has on contemporary life: Who identifies with Prometheus and who with Io? Who with Hermes and who with Oceanus? 100 Athenians, representing Athens in statistical terms of age, sex, district and nationality, will declare their similarities to – and differences from – the tragic heroes on stage. Prometheus is only the beginning. From him shall spring 100 Athenian voices, each representing 40.000 Athenians. They turn Aischylos’ “Prometheus” into a source of questions and reveal unheard statistical facts on stage.
