100 % Montréal

Helgard Haug + Stefan Kaegi + Daniel Wetzel

100 citizens dive in feet first in an astonishing collective X-ray, incarnating onstage 100% of the Montreal demography. A vibrant, exhilarating exercise in self-portrayal!


Just who are Montrealers, and what’s on their minds? Onstage 100 citizens portray 100% of the city’s population. Men, women or trans, adults, children and teenagers, atheists, Muslims and Jews, they draw a map of Montreal in a vibrant, exhilarating exercise in self-portrayal.

In this survey probe by the masters of documentary theatre the Rimini Protokoll collective, Montrealers will see themselves as they really are. Who avoids paying taxes? Who is against the wearing of the veil in public places? Who has cheated on his/her lover or spouse? Without any filters, without beating around the bush, the courageous participants of 100% Montréal respond to all questions, both the banal and the very serious. Moving onstage as though in an organic diagram  never have statistics been so full of life! — they incarnate public opinion in sensitive fashion, dramatically revealing its unpredictable movements. A candid look at the multiple identities of our city.

Rimini Protokoll

A leading figure in documentary and participative theatre in Europe, the Rimini Protokoll collective was among the first to experiment with reality theatre without actors, with plays performed entirely by citizens recounting their own stories, or by spectators engaged in an interactive experience.
