Stefan Kaegi/Rimini Protokoll (Germany/Egypt)

Australian Premiere

Four Egyptian muezzins from the mosques of Cairo bring us this remarkable documentary theatre work. Their livelihoods singing the daily calls to prayer are threatened by a government decision to replace them, and Cairo's cacophonous soundscape, with a centralised radio version.

The muezzins share their stories, their fervour and their differences in this multimedia insight into the complexities of contemporary Egypt.

Germany's influential theatre collective Rimini Protokoll works with real people and situations, smashing boundaries between journalism, performance and political action. An outstanding example of their intensely exploratory process, Radio Muezzin has been applauded across Europe.

Performed in Arabic with English supertitles.

Produced by HAU Berlin and Goethe-Institute Egypt in association with Festival d'Avignon, Bonlieu Scène nationale Annecy, Festival d'Athènes et Épidaure, steirischer herbst festival, Graz and Zürcher Theater Spektakel.
