Together with HELLERAU the choreographer Jordi Galí from Lyon (F) is looking for participants for the project BABEL

Timeplan Workshop:
2.- 3. May, always from 10:00-18:00 h in the Festspielhaus Hellerau including a break
4. May, 10:00-14:00 Uhr warm up including a break, 15:30-16:30 h performance on the forecourt of the Festspielhauses Hellerau

In BABEL, a huge, 12 meter high tower made out of wood and rope is constructed, both strong and fragile at the same time, and held together by 25 people. 

BABEL is a participatory art project in which you and the other participants are invited to take part in a creative process: During a two-day workshop, you will learn the skills needed for building the tower, producing the modules that make up the tower and test-navigating it together as a group. In this way, the Babel Tower is created from a simple, precise composition – an impressive performance and short utopia of togetherness.

The workshop includes simple, playful exercises to test the physical principles of tension and compression that make up the structure of the tower. At the same time, they help to develop trust and communication between the participants and create a community.

As part of the “Dance Together” festival, BABEL culminates in the performance and erection of the tower on forecourt of the Festspielhaus Hellerau as part of the “Dance Together” festival.

For more information:

BABEL is suitable for all curious people. No technical or dancing skills are required. Participation is possible for all those 16 years or older as well as the participation of couples and groups. People who are younger than 16 can take part if accompanied by a parent or guardian.
