100 people representing a cross section of Cork’s population are brought together to tell their stories on stage. In this once-in-a-lifetime theatre event, German documentary superstars Rimini Protokoll team up with Irish theatre director Una McKevitt to create a living, breathing portrait of Cork on the Cork Opera House stage. Over the last four months, 100 Cork people have been recruited according to specific criteria of age, gender and ethnicity, mirroring the demographic make-up of our small but perfectly formed city.
German directing collective Rimini Protokoll (Helgard Haug, Stefan Kaegi and Daniel Wetzel) have been acclaimed around the world for their unique theatre created from everyday life. They previously presented Best Before at the 2010 Cork Midsummer Festival, and Stefan Kaegi co-curated last year’s festival hit Ciudades Paralelas / Parallel Cities. Una McKevitt is a theatre maker based in Dublin. Her previous work includes 565+, Victor and Gord, The Big Deal and Singlehood.
