The sudden disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 and the slow loss of a father to dementia entwine and entangle in this meditative performance from Rimini Protokoll.
‘Something so large, so heavy, can’t just disappear from our world. So we think.’
One of the biggest mysteries in the history of modern travel merges with a personal story from Helgard Haug, director and co-founder of the award-winning German theatre group Rimini Protokoll.
On 8 March 2014, a flight carrying 227 passengers and 12 crew members took off from Kuala Lumpur, heading towards Beijing. For 39 minutes and 13 seconds, everything was routine – you could go as far as saying unspectacular. Then the plane disappeared from radar. The supposedly last radio message from the cockpit: ‘All right. Good night.’ To this day, no one can explain how an airplane can disappear without a trace.
Shortly after the plane’s disappearance, Haug’s father begins to get muddled up – posting his grandson four almost identical birthday cards. Fast forward a year later and no card arrives at all – the birthday forgotten. At some point, this forgetfulness gets a name and becomes a disease: dementia.
Weaving personal tragedy with catastrophe at large, All right. Good night. is a meditation on disappearance, loss and how to deal with uncertainty.
Expect a captivating new performance from Berlin-based Rimini Protokoll, one of Europe’s leading contemporary theatre groups – and the team behind MIF19’s visionary Utopolis.
Performed live with a haunting contemporary score from Barbara Morgenstern and arranger Davor Vincze, this poignant production makes its UK premiere at MIF23.
