Culturgest, Lisbon, Portugal
February 1 – 3 and 8 – 10, 2019
Rimini Protokoll are at home in Lisbon, having presented here no less than 6 memorable works, including Mnemopark, Chácara Paraíso, Remote Lisbon, Radio Muezzin and Home Call Europe. The jewel in the crown was still missing: the 100% City project. After having been recreated in over 35 cities spread across the globe, from Paris to Penang, from São Paulo to Brisbane, from Montreal to Stellenbosch, finally it is our turn to present it.
Lisbon is the center of the largest metropolitan area in Europe but has only 500,000 inhabitants. More than 54% of Lisbon’s residents are women, 25% are aged 65 or over and one out of every ten people are foreign nationals. Last year, Lisbon was visited by 6.2 million tourists and every day 450,000 people come into the city to study or work.
100% Lisbon takes the official statistics of the city and gives them a human face, placing on the stage one hundred of its inhabitants that represents the entire population of the city, 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.
