“A visual-theatrical installation in and for public spaces. The performance locations are the façades of buildings on streets and city squares. Simple, white chairs made of steel are mounted on buildings at a height between three and seven meters. People between the ages of 60 and over 70 years old sit on the chairs high above the passers-by. They perform rehearsed, everyday activities in a reserved manner: they read the paper, slice bread, fold clothes… activities that have to do with their daily lives.

The regular ensemble is composed of performers from Cologne and Amsterdam. In addition to performances by ensemble members, local actors have also performed new versions of the piece, such as in Brazil, Columbia, and Perú.

x-times people chair will celebrate its 10th anniversary in 2005.”
