The String Theory is an artist collective and production company based in Berlin and Gothenburg that since 2007 explores the outskirts of contemporary classical music and wild pop by means of collaborative workshops, studio recordings and live performances. The String Theory pursues a long term experimental approach, investigating new ways of interdisciplinary collaboration, incorporating visual art, developing new performance concepts and facilitating international artist networking.

Being essentially experimental in nature, The String Theory never stops questioning its own goals and sets out to regularly re-invent the way each separate project is conducted, and to further develop the unique sound of the ensemble.

The celebrated collaboration between José González and the String Theory Orchestra, conducted by Patrick Christensen aka PC Nackt toured extensively in Europe in 2017 and 2018 and in spring 2019 in the US and Canada:

“The intrepid orchestra embrace the unorthodox […] the contemporary and the traditional, combining electronic background noises with luscious string arrangements and insistent brass. […] It isn't just impressive, it's progressive.”

Music: PC Nackt, Schorsch Kamerun

In a music theatre adaption of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, director and singer Schorsch Kamerun dedicates himself to the new idea of a Stuttgart-located “cyber valley“.
World Premiere: February 24, 2018 at Kammertheater Stuttgart

Music and performance: Fabian Hinrichs, Schorsch Kamerun, PC Nackt

‘Would you like to shoot me now? Somehow you are now trying to shift the blame. You said yourself that you’re not very good with numbers. Maybe I never became a ichthyologist. But the really big dreams came true. Berlin and all of that. And YOU are now judging me on MY life?’

Fabian Hinrichs and Schorsch Kamerun meet the composer PC Nackt und dancers from Minsk for an epic performance – about whatever capital – interrupted by music and questions about how we can rule ourselves and at the same time escape from the ever commercialising apple strudel.              

After its premiere at Berlin’s Hebbel am Ufer as part of the festival Marx’ Gespenster, the piece produced by HAU, Kampnagel Hamburg and Künstlerhaus Mousonturm Frankfurt was performed in Hamburg in December and in Frankfurt in February 2016.
