Music Theatre “Bestiarium“

Performance with instruments and children.

The music theatre “Bestiarium“ by our alumna Nuria Nuñez Hierro premieres in its final version at HKW in Berlin.

DieOrdnungDerDinge: “Bestiarium. An interactive round of sound for people ages 5 and up”

On this fable-lous tour of HKW, concert, music theater and sound installation combine to form an interactive adventure. What is real, what is fantasy? Singular sounds whirr through the corridors and rooms, strange figures dart through the hallways and an old gramophone recording calls for help: A unique instrument from the past, once the centerpiece of a significant collection, it was silent for 100 years. In a hidden research lab populated by almost forgotten, whimsical beings, all your senses are called upon to search for solutions.

“Bestiarium" was developed by the Berlin ensemble DieOrdnungDerDinge in collaboration with the composer Nuria Nunez Hierro during her time as fellow at the Graduate School.
