The program is as follows:



the concert

Otto(line) Calmeijer Meijburg


How do you find your way back after a year of isolation? An enchanting, poetic concert, where sounds and bodies try to become one from a distance.



moving portraits

Carina Klingsell


Dance performance in which two performers from Babel and a circus artist engage in a movement dialogue, starting from each own’s individuality, their unique features.




Saskia Meulendijks


Can you see on the outside who someone really is on the inside? This question is investigated by actors of Babel and students of the MBO Theaterschool during an intensive collaboration.



engine burn slow

Maria Sartzetaki


In ENGINE BURN SLOW the performers let their imagination manifest through physicality. Treated as a vessel, the body shrinks and expands, resists and gives in. ENGINE BURN SLOW is a series of projections of tangible and intangible spaces.

*All the movement material was created in collaboration with the performers. The music is by Robin Becker.
