Three Elastic Chairs is an improvised installation allowing all kind of participants and spectators to experience the elasticity of time. It has been devised by Remy Bertrand over the past few years through key stages:
- Working with refugees on openness and relaxation with Stanislavski’s game inviting participants to fall asleep on a chair;
- Exploring the relationship between neutrality, awareness and presence, by having participants sitting in chairs, doing nothing;
- Investigating Mary Overlie's Six Viewpoints (Space, Shape, Time, Emotion, Movement, Storytelling);
- Producing spoken words through streams of consciousness.  
Initially, the installation was a training tool for improvisers. Noticing the audience fascination, Remy became interested in performing Three Elastic Chairs as a stand-alone improvised piece of art.
