TICKET DKK 75 plus fee at www.billetto.dk / DKK 50 for stud./retired/unemployed
Join internationally recognized multimedia collective Rimini Protokoll for a newly produced interactive and site-specific audio walk. The audio walk will take you on a journey through various transit sites, e.g. Copenhagen Central Station, giving you an experience and feeling of being in transit yourself.
Wearing headphones you will be guided by a synthetic voice – as we know them from GPS navigators. Presenting a myriad of intertwined stories around artificial intelligence and group decisions in transit, the collective audio walk will draw attention on the station areas as sites of conflicts and negotiations, on their architectural features and on the many different passengers, employees and local residents that come into contact at such sites.
The stories will be accompanied by diegetic sound recordings and atmospheric compositions created specifically for the places that the audience pass by during the audio walk. The audio walk ends at a rather extraordinary spot somewhere above the roof tops of Copenhagen.
The audio walk is commissioned by KØS Museum of Art in Public Spaces and is part of the upcoming exhibition project TRANSIT that will open 13 September 2018. TRANSIT focus attention on travelers’ different experiences, terms and conditions in our present-day world of mobility, migration and globalization. The exhibition is supported by Nordea-fonden.

Duration: 2 hours
Language: Danish or English – English version available Tuesdays and Fridays
The audiowalk ends near Copenhagen Central Station, and you will therefore not return to Vestre Kirkegård.

“The essence of Remote Copenhagen is the physical experience of being totally and intimately controlled per remote control. It is the whole game with The Voice that is interesting in Rimini Protokoll’s contribution to the audiowalk as a popular, new genre. It gets a decisive twist with its digitalized surveillance perspective, managed by the agenda-setting German theatre collective…
Here it is us as spectators, who as actors take over the stage, the city space. But even when we are free to choose whether we want to go right or left, The Voice as a super-sharp clone of iPhone’s Siri knows my next step. It is a bit like having God’s voice in your ear.”
