“100% Voronezh” is a documentary stage production based on statistical data and performed by real residents of the city. The Rimini Protokoll underline that they transfer life reality to the stage without help of intermediaries – actors. For the performance patisipation 100 people are cast in a way to reflect statistical diversity of Voronezh. And then they speak up on behalf of the whole city on various topics and answer problematic questions.
The first “100% City” was Berlin in 2008, the last one – Canadian Montreal. The project was staged in London, Paris, Marseille, Vienna, Cologne, Dresden, Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Riga, Tokyo, Philadelphia, São Paulo, Melbourne and other cities. There are about 30 of them. The idea is to create absolutely new performance in each city at the same time based on the hard framework of the Rimini Protokoll concept.
