The Baader-Meinhof eXperiment Stockholm

Vi hjälper Erlend Eidsen Hansen att sätta upp detta lysande scenario i Stockholm på tisdag. Det finns 20 platser och vi kör på Riksteatern i Hallunda.

The Baader-Meinhof eXperiment Stockholm

Two rooms, next door : the securitypolice and activists.

One wall divides them – One focus tears them apart, ideology
One group of participants plays the police, the surveillance department and the paramilitary
the other group plays activists, communists and anarchists
An interactive drama about the extreme left of Swedish activists in the 1970s,
the officers that monitor them, and the terrorists who try to recruit them.

We are in a space in a collective of Stockholm. The year is 1975. Abba has won the European Song Contest last year. The 1st of May is drawing to a close. What will be the main slogan? Will the Israelis come to Stockholm during the Grand Prix Final?

A group of peace activists and KPml(R) have a visit from a group of fresh new members of the RAF (Red Army Faction).
Andreas Baader, Ulrike Meinhof and two others are in prison in West Germany.
The RAF plan to do a politcal action in connection with the embassy in Stockholm.
The police do not intend to let this fraction ever reach their goal. But who is a terrorist, who is not? When is it terrorism?
A group of watchers have found the group and installed monitoring equipment in the apartment.
It’s just a matter of hours before the authorities have enough evidence to strike against them.

Several members of the collective do not particularly enjoy having a visit from their old communist friends who have taken up arms after a visit to the Commune 1 (K1) large squat-collective of Berlin, in 1969.

Besides being an exciting thriller this event will hopefully also reveal parallels between our time and our recent past:

  • Where are the borders between “activist” and “extremist”? What draws people to cross it?
  • Where is the line between abuse of power and control over the situation for police and authorities?
