The artists collective Invisible Playground and the unmistakable Andromeda Mega Express Orchestra team up to present a very special theater production at Hebbel Am Ufer this May: Drohnenmärchen (trans. Drone Fairy Tale). AMEO’s new album “Live On Planet Earth” was just released on The Notwists excellent Alient Transistor label and this, like all their performances promises to be a truly unique happening.
Invisible Playground is a collective of six artists, designers and scholars who develop site-specific, transmedial games. The group has already been active at HAU Hebbel am Ufer, organising the festival “You Are GO!” in 2011. The architecture of HAU1 forms the foundation for their new collaborative work with the 18-person Andromeda Mega Express Orchestra from Berlin. What emerges is a fable by drones for drones: the swarm is us.
Drones deliver packages and send live updates from Mars via Twitter. Hobbyists observe the neighbourhood. Intelligence agencies eliminate “danger” worldwide. “Fables for Drones” (after Stansław Lem’s “Fables for Robots”) sets up an experimental arrangement, combining Invisible Playground’s game principles taken from computer games, board games and role playing with media art and live concert.

Whoever claims to have heard anything like Andromeda Mega Express Orchestra before is lying. This is a 20 piece orchestra, led by a 25 year old Berlin based composer, set off a fire-work of of energy, musicality and fresh ideas. Daniel Glatzel, the man behind the force of nature known as the ANDROMEDA MEGA EXPRESS ORCHESTRA, juggles genres, styles and music-historical references in a way that’s enough to make you dizzy.
