Who do we follow when we are guided by a computer program? You can find out during a group walk through Bad Ischl.

In Bad Ischl, a group of up to 30 people, equipped with headphones, set off for the city. They are guided by an artificial voice, as known from navigation systems. The encounter with artificial intelligence tempts the group to try things out for themselves. How can we make decisions together? Who do we follow when we are guided by a computer program? – 30 People observe each other, make individual decisions and yet are always part of a group. While artificial intelligence observes human behavior from a distance, the voice becomes more familiar with each step. Along the way, artificial head recordings and cinematic compositions soundtrack the urban landscape. The journey through the city feels more and more like a collective film. The project moves from city to city as a mobile research laboratory. In doing so, each new site-specific version builds on the dramaturgy of the pre-city, thus writing the piece further and further. – The piece deals with traditional places and incidents in Bad Ischl.

Helgard Haug, Stefan Kaegi and Daniel Wetzel founded the theater label Rimini Protokoll in 2000 and have been working under this name in various constellations ever since. Piece by piece, they expand the means of theater to create new perspectives on reality. Rimini Protokoll often develop their stage plays, interventions, scenic installations and radio plays with experts who have tested their knowledge and skills beyond the theater. They also like to translate spaces or social orders into theatrical formats. Many of their works are characterized by interactivity and a playful approach to technology.
