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.
