All Right. Good Night.

A play about disappearance and loss

by Rimini Protokoll (Haug)

Theatre | Sound Design

Invited to

and nominated for Friedrich-Luft-Preise 2022


“In 'All right. Good night.' Helgard Haug traces the disappearance, the search and the struggle with uncertainty - using the example of the missing airplane and the manifesting dementia of her own father. It is the protocol of an irreversible process. Music is the artistic medium with the greatest tradition in making the disappeared tangible. Be it through a requiem in memory of the deceased or through a choir, which already in ancient theatre appeared as a witnessing chronicler and reported on hardly imaginable battles and divine fortune.” [Source]

The play is »sadly beautiful, highly concentrated mental theater dedicated to one of life’s big questions: disappearance and thus death.«

In this excellent work, Helgard Haug has tuned into slow evanescence over a period of eight years. It gives the bereaved of the ill-fated flight – who have to live one day at a time without answers, to live without a body, without a burial – a chance to speak. And it tells of an existentially fraught disease with no chance of healing. What is the self? What does dignity mean? In his last email to the director, her father wrote, “Please stay in touch with me. Try to understand. And where possible, to forgive.” - Tagesspiegel
