Home Visit USA, a participatory performance by internationally-renowned German artist collective Rimini Protokoll, will premiere in January 2017 at MCASB, as part of the exhibition Rimini Protokoll: City as Stage. The performances involve small groups of 15 people gathering together at private homes in Santa Barbara, CA, experiencing cultural exchanges with strangers in improvised situations. Set around a big table, audiences play a game in a conversational atmosphere where they talk about the ever-changing ideas of what defines our country, focusing particularly on issues that include values, borders, and cultural identity.
Participants must be at least 18 years of age.
When purchasing a ticket, participants will be asked a series of questions related to the performance. This information will also be used anonymously as part of the exhibition Rimini Protokoll: City as Stage.
