When the theatres are empty, perhaps the chairs will have to look for spectators themselves. One of them takes the plunge and sets off on an adventure.
The auditorium of the Schauspielhaus Bochum is empty. One of the theatre chairs sets off on an adventure, looking for spectators. The chair undertakes a barren journey in all weathers, but manages to reach its destination. In this slightly melancholy stop-motion animation, the theatre and chairs have been copied in miniature version and the soundtrack plays the wistful old tuneTell Me, sang by director Anne Rietmeijer.
