Workshop 'There is no why here' - deSingel 18 - 21 SEPT 13: DAY3

11 o’clock, Music Studio, deSingel, Antwerp. Third day of the workshop. After some short warm-up exercises, it is time to practice a new scene. For this part of the performance, Aline, Annelinde, Sander and David have to discover a sound repertoire that can match the actions of a group of people throwing objects at a wall, a target far away. Within this act of aggression, even ritual, the performers attempt to see what they can do vocally.

Workshop 'There is no why here' - deSingel 18 - 21 SEPT 13: An insight into the creation of the project

Driven by thirst, I eyed a fine icicle outside the window, within hand’s reach. I opened the window and broke off the icicle but at once a large, heavy guard prowling outside brutally snatched it away from me. - Warum? - I asked him in my poor German. - Hier ist kein warum, - (there is no why here), he replied, pushing me inside with a shove.  Primo Levi, Se questo è un uomo

Workshop 'There is no why here' - deSingel 18-21 SEPT 13: DAY2 PARTII

If we do that, we have to answer to evil 

During lunch time, Aline remarks that sound is starting to haunt her. When her boyfriend was preparing dinner the previous evening, she kept hearing new possibilities of sound.  Even at lunch the group has to resist the urge to start creating sounds with butter, cheese or cutlery.
In the afternoon, they try the improvisation one more time. Again, new ideas come forth and interesting images are produced, some of which cause hilarity. Witty suggestions of integrating Danke Schön or Michael Jackson come up. David warns jokingly: “if we do that, we have to answer to evil”.

Workshop 'There is no why here' - deSingel 18-21 SEPT 13: DAY2

On Wednesday, four performers met for the first time to improvise, to brainstorm, to try, to fail, to succeed, to see, to learn. Their purpose: create what will be -there is no why here-, a project by Andrea Molino and directed by Wouter van Looy. For four days of intensive workshops, they are confined to the Music Studio at the Singel in Antwerpen where they try to find a unison in voice and performance.

Workshop 'There is no why here' - deSingel 18-21 SEPT 13: There are no limitations here

In June 2013 auditions for the multimedia music theatre project -there is no why here- took place in Antwerp. Aline, Annelinde and Sander were selected out of the group of applicants, all young vocalists under 30, interested in improvisation and experimentation. From 18 September until 21 September they take part in a workshop with composer Andrea Molino, director Wouter Van Looy and lead singer David Moss, and take their first steps in the creative process of the production.
