The IIPM – International Institute of Political Murder, based in Switzerland and Germany, was founded by Milo Rau in 2007 for the creation and international utilisation of his theatre productions, actions and films. Since its founding, IIPM has focused on the multimedia treatment of historical and sociopolitical conflicts, bringing to the stage such topics as the execution of Nicolae and Elena Ceausescu (“The Last Days of the Ceausescus”), the Rwandan genocide (“Hate Radio”) and the Nor-wegian terrorist Anders B. Breivik (“Breivik’s Statement”).
Another performance project enacted a battle with a Swiss town parliament over the right of foreigners to vote (“City of Change”).
In spring 2013, IIPM brought a completely new theatre format to life with two multi-day judicial spectacles (“The Moscow Trials” and “The Zurich Trials”).
Most recently, the IIPM caused a sensation with the internationally acclaimed productions “Five Easy Pieces” (2016), “General Assembly” (2017), “The Repetition” (2018) and “The New Gospal” (film).
