Remote Berlin

In online games people who have never met each other in reality take off on a virtual scavenger hunt. In “Remote Berlin” one such group dons headphones and sets off into the real city.

They are guided by an artificial voice, such as those we know from GPS systems of airports. Dummy head recordings and film music are used to create a trek through the city, a soundtrack to streets, parking garages, and courtyards. The encounter with artificial intelligence incites the horde to start experimenting on themselves. Are they in fact hearing the same thing? How can we make collective decisions? 50 people mutually observe each other in ever smaller units, only to become a swarm once again, in which everybody does decide individually. The journey through the city becomes a collective film. And while the artificial intelligence observes human behaviour from the distance of an alien, its voice starts sounding more and more human with every step.

Remote X is a trek through the city. A soundtrack to streets, parking garages, churches, and courtyards for a swarm of 50 individuals.

Following site specific variations in Lisbon, Hannover, Avignon and Zurich and over 100 sold-out performances, Remote Berlin is now coming back to HAU in a revised version.

Remote Berlin is available in German and English.
