Babel

The oneness of diversity ... amplified.

About

This live performance of sound and expression will immerse you in many of the fifty or so languages spoken in Tasmania. Words and lilts and tones have been studied, combined and choreographed into a durational performance in a disused office space in central Hobart.

Choreographer and creator Glen Murray, composer Heath Brown and sound and lighting designer Jason James join with Tasmanians for whom English is not their first language to give voice to a hidden population. Together they have created an embracing, confronting and tender work that evokes contemplation and conversation about language and humanity.

If you understand nothing that is said, you will look for the unsaid and it will speak volumes.

Presented by Invisible Practice in association with Ten Days on the Island

Supported by Regional Arts Fund, Tasmania Regional Arts and Arts Tasmania, development supported by Festival of Voices and Salamanca Arts Centre.
