there is no why here – multimedial music theater of Andrea Molino

qui non c’√® perch√© – or there is no why here – is a project of the Italian composer Andrea Molino, with – next to BL!NDMAN [sax] + [drums] – David Moss and Anna Linardou as soloists, directed by Wouter Van Looy.

The difference between ‘good’ and ‘evil’ is not only clear to religious leaders. Even George Bush was convinced that his war on terror was ‘a war of good against evil’. If we dig deeper, however, it seems impossible to define either category in an objective and generally accepted way. Following up on Hannah Arend, There is no why here outlines ‘the fundamental problem of the nature and function of the human judgment,’ which implies the problem of responsibility. This performance does not pretend to present a clear solution or even straightforward statements. Rather, it is a collection of different, sometimes contradicting contributions. Images recorded by cameras on stage or by external webcams are an organic counterpoint. The musicians play the video – which is part of the music – as if it were an instrument.
