On October 27 2010, Anouk van Dijk and Falk Richter presented at the schaubühne berlin the world premiere of their new collaboration, PROTECT ME. The work is performed by actors from the schaubühne and dancers from anoukvandijk.

In PROTECT ME, people find themselves in a state of disorientation. Their lives have taken root in the global crisis and in vain they now seek support with each other. Despite their troublesome situation, they try to approach their future expectantly. As in the performance TRUST, PROTECT ME weaves together political themes and physical explosiveness, often creating a humorous perspective on human relations. PROTECT ME is a search for who we really are and how we can be of value to one another.

PROTECT ME is a coproduction by the schaubühne berlin with anoukvandijk dc and European theater network Prospero.
