Current Moscow time:
is a tour performance through the streets of Moscow
for a group of 50 people.
Remote Moscow is a new performance format, produced in the hot and happening genre of the “promenade performance”, the so-called “audio promenade”. Remote Moscow combines the elements of performance, guided tour, computer game and quest.
There are no chairs to sit in, the audience takes full part in the action. Following the voice, the spectators are constantly on the move. The events take place in real time, the city streets provide the set design, people passing by become the actors, while the surrounding reality provides props.
Participants of the show put on their headphones and take off for a fascinating adventure in the streets of Moscow. Together with their computerised interlocutor they explore the city in stereo format.

RIMINI PROTOKOLL AND IMPRESARIO FEODOR ELUTINE PRESENT REMOTE MOSCOW
“People put on the headphones, go into the city streets, come back enlightened and can’t answer a simple question “What happened?” It’s not a spectacle, but a spectacular focus-pocus.”
“An all-encompassing soundtrack for the city. The familiar sense of existing reality slips away, but, on the other hand, what can be more real than this?”
Tages Anzeiger, Zurich
“Rimini Protokoll invents a healthier type of theatre, because it’s the only one to keep the audience in constant motion - and not just of the body, but also of the soul.”
Tages Woche, Basel
“This performance is not about a city, it’s about a life journey. The synthetic voice takes the audience from a cemetery to the rooftop, from death to regeneration.”
Hannoversche Allgemeine, Hannover
“There is no know-how, we simply change a person’s point of view of life’s everyday moments.”
