Countless Yellow Chairs

May 12, 2016 @ 7:30 pm

COUNTLESS YELLOW CHAIRS IS A NEW PERFORMANCE WORK CREATED AND
PERFORMED BY DANCE MAKER LAÏLA DIALLO AND COMPOSER JULES MAXWELL.
‘At the heart of it are nine chairs. Both of us and nine chairs.
Nine chairs holding in themselves countless possible narratives, sign
posts of a moment gone, or of something yet to unfold. They are nine
and they are countless.’
‘Over the course of the piece, with us, the chairs become someone
alone, they become a conversation, they are witnesses, they are an
embrace, they are a memory, they are an imprint, they are bones, they
are a forest, they are stacked, they are an aftermath, they are a
ballroom, they are resting, they are a row, they are one short, they
are held, they hold our weight, they hold our wait, they move, and
change and remain nine yellow chairs.’ – Laila Diallo

With this collaboration the artists continue a conversation they began
with Hold Everything Dear in 2012, exploring movement and music in
live performance to create a work of compelling poetic effect.
Countless Yellow Chairs is supported using public funding by Arts
Council England, co-commissioned by Theatre Bristol, Bath ICIA and
Bristol Old Vic Ferment/Jerwood Charitable Foundation
