Rimini Protokoll is the label of three young authors and directors from Germany and Switzerland (Daniel Wetzel / Helgard Haug / Stefan Kaegi), who have gained reputation for their theatre campaigns and actions in public spaces and for directing Ready-Made-Performers in theatre spaces. In sabenation, former employees of the bankrupt Sabena airline represent the company on stage and ask: what is left of the dramatis personae of the great state-owned Belgian company two and a half years after its demise? Sabenation is not just a play about a paradigmatic financial crisis and its victims, it's like a pirate copy of the world, a protocol of the here and now, long after the economic boom wirtschaftlichen Höhenflug.
