For almost twenty years, Stefan Kaegi has travelled the world and worked with non-actors whom he calls the experts of everyday life. With them, the Berlin-based Swiss director creates documentary plays, radio plays, and space installations in and for the cities he visits. A founding member of the Rimini Protokoll collective, his theatrical and multidisciplinary investigations question the real by creating a direct communication link with the audience. Festivalgoers will surely remember the last time the collective came to Avignon in 2013 with Remote Avignon, an audio tour of the papal city, and Lagos Business Angels.
