Dance the shift!
Order is not good or bad. It provides support, gives structure, provides security - and at the same time, order categorizes, includes and excludes, limits.
The ensemble of „In Ordnung“, consisting of 16 actors*, oscillates between the relief of order and the need to break out of it. How can freedom be found in order? How can a group organize itself in such a way that everyone can be part of it?
Existing systems of order are examined, questioned and appropriated through dance. The ensemble explores new orders, surrenders to chaos and shifts, shifts, shifts - the stage, itself and the social order.
The set and costumes are largely made up of transformed materials from the collection. The ensemble is set in relation to the costume and stage elements of the past. Because our order does not take place in a vacuum. It is part of history, either reproducing it or creating something new.
In chaos theory, there is the so-called butterfly effect. It states that in non-linear dynamic systems, it is not possible to predict how small changes in the initial conditions will affect the development of the system in the long term. An event takes place and nobody knows what will happen in the end. The butterfly effect can also be seen as a metaphor for this piece. We change the initial conditions and dance the shift. Open ending.
„In Ordnung“ is an intoxicating ensemble dance piece that sets out in search of a collective energy of change.
