Helgard Haug + Stefan Kaegi + Daniel Wetzel (Berlin) Rimini Protokoll

Media Coverage

“The Berlin-based trio Rimini Protokoll created a curious, fascinating and surprisingly moving piece of raw reality theatre that comforts and shocks in its revelations about our city’s wonderful people.”

“The genius of 100 % Melbourne is how it forces the audience to answer the questions themselves. Would we be happy/brave/stupid enough to answer them in front of strangers, let alone in front of family and friends?”

“The show that turns dry census statistics into live performance theatre.”

The Guardian, 2012-06-29, about 100 % London

“If it’s in vogue right now, Rimini Protokoll has long been ahead of the curve. The Germany-based collective has been putting non-performers onstage for more than a decade (…) and has been credited with inventing a new form of documentary theatre.”
