Driving Deeper into That Thing:
The Humanity of Heiner Goebbels's Stifters Dinge
Heiner Goebbels's music theatre work Stifters Dinge is a performance without human performers, a "no-man show" in which things are the thing. In its exhibition of mobile scenic elements and automated musical instruments, it is a meditation on objecthood, materality, and the environment that nevertheless reveals a humanity at its center.
