Of All The People In All The World: Netherlands and UK

Noorderzon Festival, Groningen
17 – 27 August, 2006


This great festival hosted The Black Maze last year. It is centred around a park so this became the show’s first outing in a tent. With interest from other outdoor festival we were keen to see if it worked. Despite torrential downpours the marquee stayed basically sound and well over a thousand people paid O4 to see a rapidly evolving array of approximately 250 statistics.

Highlight of this gig for Jake was being asked if he considered himself a scientist or an artist.

Imposing and confronting – makes you think about stuff you don’t think about.

It makes things clear all though it’s not always the number that counts.


It made me feel very small and part of many. Very impressive.
