For the Porto City Theatre’s 87th anniversary, Rimini Protokoll was invited
to present their project for the first time in Portugal, titled 100% (name of
the city), in this case, Porto.They are recognized for creating projects from
concrete situations and specific places, and for working with non-professionals
as actors, on stage and in other places of cities.
The project takes the statistics of the city and gives them a human face, placing
on stage one hundred of its inhabitants that represent the population of Porto,
divided into categories such as gender, age, nationality, family unit and area
of residence. Each of them also speaks for him or herself: about their lives, their
joys and their sorrows.
The book was commissioned by Porto City Theatre to be handed out during
the performance. It compiles all the information that was presented in the
performance as well as profiles of each of the 100 participants.
