Best Before
May 6 - 9, 2010

Rimini Protokoll

$24 Merrill Wright Mainstage

Each spectator in Best Before is a single pixel or anonymous avatar in the creation of virtual city. Over the course of the performance, a simulated city begins to emerge as the audience controls the fate of the 200 people gathered in the theater. The game is introduced, framed and commented on by  "experts from daily life" who make their living as renegade game developers and city workers who present danger signs in urban traffic. Those who play decide the outcome of this community and whether it will survive or collapse. Founded in 2000, Rimini Protokoll has created over 20 new works of theater, often using non-actors and non-theatrical spaces and is recognized as being among the leaders and creators of the theatre movement known as  "Reality Trend" (Theater der Zeit).
