Remote Rochester

One giant interactive, immersive, community play

Remote Rochester Debuts at the Fringe with World-Renowned Interactive Theatre

Berlin. Milan. Amsterdam. Paris. New York. And now ROCHESTER.

Created by world-renowned, site-specific theatre company Rimini Protokoll. Fifty people guided by a synthetic voice in their headphones will swarm Rochester, discovering new perspectives on the city, themselves and reality. An interactive, street theatre experience, Remote Rochester leads audiences on a journey that shifts perceptions of familiar landscapes, unifies the group, and conjures up personal memories. And there’s a secret route. Wear comfortable shoes: this is a walking tour of the city you think you know
