Christophe Meierhans [CH/BE]
Trials of Money
18.04 – 19.04.2018
A fair trial
In a world where financial markets, social net-works algorithms, and automated warfare infrastructures take decisions in place of human beings, Trials of Money turns the theatre into a court of justice which does not yet exist: the Special Tribunal for Semi-Human Persons. For this first case, artist-in-residence Christophe Meierhans ánd the members of the court will call Money – the thing that rules the world – to answer for what has taken place under its governance.
• Christophe Meierhans is an artist-in-residence at the Kaaitheater and has made a mark over the past few years with provocative productions like Some Use for Your Broken Clay Pots and A Hundred Wars to World Peace.
