Tackling one of the biggest mysteries in the history of modern travel alongside a true story of personal tragedy.

Blending the public with the private, Rimini Protokoll unpick the sudden disappearance of the Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 and juxtapose it with Haug’s real-life experience of dementia, following her father’s diagnosis with the condition.

In 2014, the Malaysia Airlines flight travelling from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing vanished from all radars. The aircraft was carrying 227 passengers and 12 crew members. It is reported that the last radio message from the flight deck was, “All right. Good night”. A short time after the aircraft disappeared, Haug’s father began to present with symptoms of dementia.

The performance features a haunting contemporary score from Barbara Morgenstern.

This sensitive and powerful performance intelligently weaves an intimate personal tragedy with an unsolved international catastrophe. Performed live in HOME’s Theatre 1, the performance features a haunting contemporary score from Barbara Morgenstern, arranged by Davor Cincze.

Founded in 2000 by Helgaurd Haug, Stefan Kaegi and Daniel Wetzel, Rimini Protokoll, aim to create new perspectives on reality through performance. Often making interactive performance pieces that incorporate technology, the company have presented stage plays, interventions, scenic installations, and radio plays internationally.

Created in collaboration with the team behind MIF19’s Utopolis, we expect Rimini Protokoll’s All Right. Good Night to be an utterly beautiful and compelling performance.
