‘At the heart of it are nine chairs. The two of us, and nine chairs. In turn, they, and we, are an aloneness, an embrace, a memory, an imprint, witnesses. They are bones, they are a forest, they are stacked, they are an aftermath, they are a ballroom, they are resting, they are one short, they hold our weight, they hold our wait. They are countless. And they are nine yellow chairs.’ — Laïla Diallo

Countless Yellow Chairs invites a contemplative gaze on an unfolding of events that speak of presence, of memory, of memories and of the passing of time. The objects take centre stage, firing our imaginations and bringing to light something of our own humanness.

Devised and performed by dance maker Laïla Diallo and composer Jules Maxwell, Countless Yellow Chairs follows on from their first collaboration, Hold Everything Dear.
