How to disappear completely
Audiowalk, German & English
Places change, so do people. There are places where different pasts exist in layers on top of each other and people have left behind their mark. And there are traces that are suddenly lost. Is there a logic to this? How do you know what it was like before? Or what it will be like in future? HOW TO DISAPPEAR COMPLETELY is walk and a story. With your own smartphone, earphones and an app, you will follow a route through Dresden, following a plan and yet moving individually, through the city and at the same time through a story.
The Hungarian collective MeetLab is an interdisciplinary platform for and by artists who experiment with digital technologies and their uses. Their work often takes place in public and uses everyday technologies to extend or play with the real situation. Writer and dramaturge Ambrus Ivanyos (*1991) is one of the founders of MeetLab. He develops scenarios for different formats for theatre, film, installation and live games. HOW TO DISAPPEAR COMPLETELY is his first piece as a writer and a director. Bálint Tóth (*1989) is an architect and also one of the founders of MeetLab. For him, art in public space is “soft tool” for architecture and urban development. Ivanyos and Tóth developed the Dresden version during two workshops in close collaboration with their co-authors from Dresden.

You will need the following to participate:
- a fully charged smartphone with GPS function, Internet connection for downloading the app and audio files, 160 MB free disk space, headphones
- Book a ticket for 10,00 € via https://staatsschauspiel-dresden.eventim-inhouse.de/webshop/webticket/shop?coupon=8 / or: "via the ticket button". You will then receive a QR or security code by e-mail.

- After downloading the app and audio files you can deactivate the internet connection of your device. The audiowalk will work without internet connection as soon as the content is downloaded.
- You can now do the audiowalk between 1 and 31 December, whenever you want. You start with no. 1, the test station in front of the service centre at the Schauspielhaus, Theaterstraße 2. The app reacts to your GPS data and automatically triggers the audio files when you reach a certain location. Within the app you can see a map on which different locations are marked. You don't have to go to all locations, but can select any one you like: as long as you walk from the beginning at Augustusbrücke to the end in the Alaunpark, you will get a complete story. You also don't have to follow the numbering as it appears on the screen. You are completely free to choose your route.
If you have any questions about the audio walk, we will help you by phone:
