This project was made exclusively for Hoog Catherijne Utrecht, a shopping mall that becomes deserted and very depressing after 6 pm. This is when all the shops close, and the junkies and all the other people  ‘who don’t want go home’ appear. Compagnie de Compagnie was a stand measuring four meters square with 13 pairs of identical twins. They were placed there to be the companions of people wandering past the Hoog Catherijne at night. The members of the public always determined the route. This performance by 13 pairs of twins was a complement to the inhuman nocturnal architecture in which we have to live.
