In november / december 2017 “The Congo Tribunal” returns to the stage and experiences feedback into reality.Two years after the Hearings, the results of the project are to be presented in venues in Germany and Switzerland. They will be discussed with core members of the tribunal and further guests who will take up the fundamental themes of the tribunal to develop them further in an interdisciplinary way. What are the limitations and possibilities of documentary art? Can an artificial and, as it were, hyperreal tribunal lead to the actual legal investigation of war crimes and civil war?

With: Milo Rau, Sylvestre Bisimwa, Jean-Louis Gilissen, Prince Kihangi, Wolfgang Kaleck, Colette Braeckman, Marc-Antoine Vumilia, Linda Polman, Mirjam Saage-Maaß, Arne Birkenstock, Chantal Peyer and others.

During the performances, a mobile Virtual Reality installation will interweave extracts from the digital first-person narration of the documentary game “Witness J” to accompany the tour.
