DieOrdnungDerDinge is a group equally rooted in the traditions of musical performance and theatre. Each staging by the group is an exploration of the performance act itself, and a questioning of the highly-systematised concert experience.
In their show ‘If you know what I mean,’ DieOrdnungDerDinge invite the public ‘not only to hear, but to see and most importantly to re-discover.’ To that end, one piece features violinist Vera Kardos playing in the dark while covered in LEDs. In another piece, the ‘performance’ is simply the players’ reactions as they listen to a well-worn classical piece on headphones.
DieOrdnungDerDinge’s work is a consideration of what is conveyed by those on stage, and how we, as audience members, are primed to receive it.
