Remote London is part of an international phenomenon staged all over the world – from Moscow to New York, Milan to Bangalore. Through the playful guidance of a computer-generated voice, people who have never met before come together to explore the city from the perspective of artificial intelligence. GPS takes centre stage and transforms London into a living playing field.

Cult pioneer of documentary theatre, Rimini Protokoll, is an internationally celebrated collective founded by Helgard Haug, Stefan Kaegi and Daniel Wetzel from Switzerland and Germany. Awards include the Silver Lion of the Biennale for Performing Arts in Venice in 2011 and the Swiss Grand Prix of Theatre in 2015.

Remote London is presented as part of Theatre of Europe and Chelsea Theatre in Rep and is supported by Arts Council England, Goethe-Institut London, Pro Helvetia and the Swiss Culture Fund UK.

Performances are taking place on the following dates, at 4pm, unless otherwise stated when booking:
1 Aug | 11 Aug | 16 Aug | 18 Aug | 8 Sep | 10 Sep | 15 Sep | 21 Sep | 24 Sep | 28 Sep | 1 Oct | 5 Oct | 6 Oct | 12 Oct | 20 Oct
Theatre of Europe commissions leading theatre directors from the continent with British creatives to premiere European work for a UK audience. The producing company develops each project over several years, bringing together some of the most exciting artists across the continent and in the UK and working to widen access to continental European theatre practise within mainstream British theatre.
Artistic Director Henriette Morrison said: Brexit will inevitably create some logistical hurdles for future collaborations of this nature but what has become clear over these past few weeks is the resolve of theatre makers to continue collaborating with artists across borders. So Theatre of Europe’s overarching aim to encourage the periodic return of international partners feels all the more vital.
