In the new production „Between the Chairs“, big and small places are created. They are taken, offered, and snatched away. Borders are drawn and opened. With humor and brilliancy, the ensemble creates surprising, partly absurd situations which challenge to change perspectives. Topics such as freedom, foreignness and equality are dealt with in an abstract way and become tangible at the same time. The chairs constantly play a central role and are a metaphor for the "place".

The focus is set on two actors and of course a dozen chairs. They are pushed there and back, they are knocked on, they are offered and taken away. Now the chairs form a circle, now they build a line. [...] The performance also connects with the very big questions of national borders or residence permits. For young people, the questions are especially relevant, Kölling says: "Am I allowed to be here? Am I allowed to be there? Am I in the right place? Every teenager is asking these questions in relatuon to their family, their class, their circle of friends..."

„It is about the own place in the works, and even more about the question, who can tell somebody that they have a right to be here, to be in a certain place, or that they have to go away again." – […] – „I found it interesting, that the problems were presented in a very amusing way.“ – „The actors were very good, they have created very interesting situations. It was easy to understand this state of mind of "This is mine now" and "Oh god, he could take this away from me", I mean, it was easy to understand these fears that develop very well.“
