Within the framework of the “German Season“, the world acclaimed Berlin director trio Rimini Protokoll in collaboration with the Indonesian theatrical group Teater Garasi and together with a hundred citizens of Yogyakarta performed the piece “100% Yogyakarta”.
The unique format includes “ordinary citizens“ of the city of Yogyakarta from the beginning as lay actors in the process of making theater. In a large-scale casting process, one hundred people were carefully selected for the project. Each person had their own perspective and answer to (partly controversial) topics and thus reflected a representative statistic on stage and offered the audience an unconventional and partially surprising insight into their city: an invitation to everyone to reflect and question everyday realities.
“100%” Yogyakarta was an extraordinary project, a unique event that transformed a whole city and its inhabitants into a theater stage.
The works of Rimini Protokoll – which consists of Helgard Haug, Stefan Kaegi and Daniel Wetzel – come from the field of theater, radio plays, film and installation and are created by either two or three of the members, or sometimes as solo work. Since 2002, all of their works are summarized and announced under the label Rimini Protokoll. The focus of their work is the development of theater as a medium to allow unusual perspectives on our reality.
