    Evros Walk Water

    A John Cage Re-Enactment

    The river Evros is a demarcation line in «Fortress Europe», separating Greece and Turkey. As the Evros is now sealed off, refugees have to sail from the Turkish coast in overcrowded boats. Daniel Wetzel (Rimini Protokoll) and a group of young men who fled to Athens from Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria have composed an audio play based on John Cage's «Water Walk» of 1960. Cage used everyday sounds, like that of a juicer, a pot, a vase or a rubber duck, for a celebration of sound. For this re-enactment, the original «Water Walk» instruments have been replaced by items that tell us about flight, internment camps and the refugees' life in Athens. As they are not permitted to be in Weimar for the performance, the audience listens to their stories at individual listening stations and plays the «instruments» on their behalf. Rimini Protokoll work at the interface between theatre, film, audio play and installation. Their play «Adolf Hitler: Mein Kampf, Band 1 & 2» was premiered at last year's Kunstfest.
