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 is a music theater production for people ages 5 and up, developed by the Berlin ensemble DieOrdnungDerDinge in collaboration with the composer Nuria Nunez Hierro. The project originated at the Graduate School at the Berlin University of the Arts and is funded by the Capital City Cultural Fund. DieOrdnungDerDinge and develops music programs enabling children and adults alike to explore the sphere between concert, theater and performance. Previous projects were performed at HKW, several theaters and concert halls in German-speaking countries, at international theater and concert festivals as well as at the Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao and on Deutschlandfunk Kultur.

Bestiarium is produced by DieOrdnungDerDinge, supported by the Hauptstadtkulturfonds
