    Best Before

    Rimini Protokoll

    Best Before pulled the multi-player video game out of the virtual realm and plugged it into an intimate theatre setting.

    After wowing audiences as part of Vancouver’s Winter Olympics Cultural programme, groundbreaking German collective Rimini Protokoll brought its latest slice of ‘reality theatre’ to London.

    200 game controllers connected to one giant screen in the theatre let the audience create their own unique simulated civilisation. It was a reflective piece which provoked audience members to ask themselves honest questions. Each show was different depending on the decisions made by the audience.


    This quirky Canadian-German co-production from Rimini Protokoll is a gem from the LIFT Festival, currently popping up in venues all over London `{`…`}` As we pelt through this hyper-accelerated life, we’re forced to consider whether our choices are consistent.
