German Season/Encounters #3, 100% Yogyakarta: Teater Garasi meets Rimini Protokoll

Within the framework of the “German season“, the world acclaimed Berlin director trio “Rimini Protocol“, will be performing in collaboration with the Indonesian theatrical group “Teater Garasi“ and together with a hundred carefully selected representative citizens, a piece called “100% Yogyakarta“.

The format includes “ordinary citizens“ of the city of Yogyakarta from the beginning as lay actors in the process of making theater. It reflects the citizens of Yogyakarta city by their numbers and statistics and invites you to reflect on the everyday realities and to scrutinize.

As in other productions of “Rimini Protokoll“ those experts of everyday life were determined together with Teater Garasi in a large-scale casting process, which describe on stage their personal perspective on their city. This unique concept has already been done in other cities such as Berlin, Vienna, Zurich, London, Tokyo and Melbourne.

Helgard Haug, Stefan Kaegi and Daniel Wetzel formed a writers-director team since 2000. Their work in the field of theater, radio plays, film and installation came in form of two and three constellations and as well as in solos. Since 2002, all of their works under the label “Rimini Protokoll“ were summarized and announced. The focus of their work is the development of the means of the theater to allow unusual perspectives on our reality.

Join our artist talk on 25 October 2015, where the team will share their experiences in the creative working process, on selecting the Yogyakarta citizen, and how they manage the selected citizen in one stage.

This program is the third event of German Season/Encounters – a series of discussions presented at Cemeti Art House.
