About: In Silent Chairs, I wanted to use the chairs to investigate how we can see them when they are placed in a specific context: for example at a wedding, in a classroom or in the theatre. In these circumstances I wondered about the effect on us when we see an empty chair somewhere, like in the street, or when someone sits alone among many other people. During the process with the dancers we thought a lot about loneliness and used this theme as a vehicle to create the piece.
