Remote-controlled spectators, Kazakhstani oil-drillers and Indian call-centre operators are to feature in short videos co-produced by German theatre director Stefan Kaegi at Cairo’s Goethe Institute next Thursday.

The director of documentary theatre plays is to show the videos and discuss his artistic practice as part of a talk titled ‘Decontextualised Performers and Remote Controlled Audiences’ in the programme of this year’s DCAF festival.

Kaegi studied visual arts in Zurich and theatre at the University of Giessen.

Since 2000, he has co-produced work with Helgard Haug and Daniel Wetzel under the label Rimini Protokoll, a Berlin-based collective. Rimini Protokoll have received numerous awards, including the German Theatre Award Der Faust (2007), and the New Theatre Realities Prize.

Kaegi was also the curator of the 2012 Malta Festival Idiom Asian Investments.
