Disorders – Ensemble Modelo62

This concert has already taken place. Click here for our current concert programme.

DisOrders is a multidisciplinary performance about mental health. To what extent are we prepared to help people with a mental condition such as ADHD, autism or a borderline personality disorder? How can we open up our society to accommodate people who are not ‘in order’? Composer Petra Strahovnik leads ensemble Modelo62, based in The Hague, in a mind-expanding combination of video, electronics, performance art and music.

This concert forms the second part of a long-term project concerning psychological health, led by composer Petra Strahovnik, who herself struggles with depression. Especially for this project Modelo62’s musicians underwent an intensive training in performance art given by performance artist Jürgen Fritz. The project will culminate in an opera in 2020.
