“The Ninth“ by Via Negativa, directed by Bojan Jablanovec, questions the power of music and its abuse. Five performers gallop through the entire sound landscape of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9, a masterpiece of the western civilization. In the middle of this striking example of human spirit, there is humankind. Naked and suspicious. Not complex but reduced. Nothing great about it. Nothing triumphant. There’s no difference between man and horses.
