Renowned theater-makers Rimini Protokoll bring the US premiere of Top Secret International (State 1), an algorithmic-based interactive theater experience. In the Egyptian Wing of the Brooklyn Museum, participants uncover international intelligence networks. Where will their mission take them? Who can be trusted? And what happens when the game is over? Is it a game?

Rimini Protokoll is the label of the theater-makers Helgard Kim Haug, Stefan Kaegi, and Daniel Wetzel, who have been working collaboratively since 2000. Their groundbreaking stage productions, sound and radio plays, films, and installations deal with the theatrical elements of our reality, placing experts instead of actors at the center. Top Secret International (State 1) is co-initiated by the Goethe-Institut as part of the two-year interdisciplinary project, Sensitive Data, a collaboration between the Goethe-Institut, Germany’s Federal Agency for Civic Education, Münchner Kammerspiele, and Bard College. State 1 is the first piece in Rimini Protokoll’s series, State 1–4, a cooperation between Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Münchner Kammerspiele, Düsseldorfer Schauspielhaus, Staatsschauspiel Dresden, Schauspielhaus Zürich, and Rimini Protokoll, as part of HKW’s long-term project 100 Years of Now, funded by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media. 

All orders subject to $3 per ticket service fee and $1.50 per ticket facility fee. There is a $5 fee for UTR packs. Service fees for single tickets are waived at the Box Office window. All fees are waived for Public Theater Members and Partners. Plays, titles, actors, directors, and performance dates and times are subject to change. All sales are final, no refunds or cancellations.
