For the 100% City series, Rimini Protokoll has traveled the world, working with local citizens to build immersive theater experiences. Now, the German theater group brings its cutting-edge concept to the area we call home.

100% The Triangle features 100 local (non-actor) residents chosen according to the demographics of our region. Over a four-month period, Rimini Protokoll will partner with CPA and Carolina Demography to build a truly representative cross-section of three counties: Wake, Durham, and Orange. Then, in October, the participants will come together for a substantive, human performance that breaks down tired narratives about what North Carolina—and the South—can be. Buy tickets today to witness this one-of-a-kind performance. See your community through a new lens!


General admission tickets available for $32.25. $10 UNC-Chapel Hill student tickets available with valid UNC One Card. Additional discounts available. Limits apply. Visit our FAQ page for details.

How Did We Get Here?

A Conversation and Community Gathering on Demographics, Place, and Art Making

When: September 26, 5:30–7 PM

Where: The Story Venue, Chapel Hill, with catering by Mediterranean Deli

In advance of this performance, we invite you to join Dr. Nathan Dollar, Director of Carolina Demography, Dr. Rachel Levy, Executive Director for NC State’s Data Science Academy, and the demographically diverse participants who will be performing in 100% The Triangle for a conversation and community gathering. Together, we’ll focus on the contemporary and historic demographics of the Triangle, the everyday, place-based stories that illuminate those statistics, and how data and anecdote will meld into art. Who lived here? Who lives here? How did we get here?

Presented in partnership with Carolina Demography.


Helgard HaugStefan Kaegi, and Daniel Wetzel founded the theatre-label Rimini Protokoll in 2000, and have since worked in different constellations under this name. Work by work they have expanded the means of the theatre to create new perspectives on reality.

Rimini Protokoll often develop their stage-works, interventions, performative installations, and audio plays together with experts who have gained their knowledge and skills beyond the theatre. Furthermore, they like to transpose rooms or social structures into theatrical formats. Many of their works feature interactivity and a playful use of technology.

Hence, Rimini Protokoll declared the General Assembly of Daimler stockholders a theatre play. Or, with Call Cutta and Call Cutta in a Box, they set up a transatlantic conversation between a worker in an Indian call-center and each audience member.

With 100% City they have created a wordwide, ever-newly contextualizing work, where 100 statistically chosen inhabitants of the city gather on a theatre stage. Their production World Climate Conference mirrors the drama of the diplomatic efforts for the protection of the earth’s atmosphere at the Schauspielhaus Hamburg. For the multiplayer-video-walk Situation Rooms, they built a hyperrealistic set in which the 20 audience members follow the tracks of people whose biographies have been shaped by weapons. In Utopolis, the audience is guided through the city by 48 portable speakers—to set course for shared or contradicting utopias.

Recently, the group has created more and more immersive and interactive works for museums, including win><win or Urban Nature. The pieces All right. Good night. (2022), Chinchilla Arsehole, eyeye (2020), Situation Rooms (2014), Wallenstein (2006), and Deadline (2004) have been invited to the Berliner Theatertreffen.

On top of that, Rimini Protokoll received the Mülheimer Dramatikerpreis for Karl Marx: Das Kapital, Erster Band, as well as Der Faust (a German theatre prize), the Grand Prix Theatre from the Swiss Federal Office for Culture, the European Theatre Award, and the Silver Lion at the Theatre Biennale in Venice, as well as the German Audio Play Award and the War Blinded Audio Play Prize.

Since 2003, Rimini Protokoll’s production office has been located in Berlin.
