The city as a backdrop.
The audience in the lead role.

Walk in the protagonist’s shoes

Just like you were in a film, Urban Nature offers you the chance to walk onto film sets, pass through a series of fictional places and put yourself in the shoes of one of the seven characters in the work: a professor of economic and environmental history; an entrepreneur in new economies linked to technology and cities; a young woman who used to live on the streets; a girl from the Raval district; a worker in the underground economy; a prison guard and a financial adviser.

A unique cultural experience

The unexpected is part of the genetic make-up of Rimini Protokoll. Taking part in a Rimini Protokoll plays means diving into unconventional experiences, daring to become part of a unique cultural experiment.

Cities are the microscopes that allow us to see the extremes in society

«Urban Nature» opens up the debate about public or private management of natural resources such as water, the right to decent housing, the boom in new economies and forms of work, the viewpoints of younger generations and the huge levels of inequality between inhabitants of the same city.
