Babel-o-drome

Summary

Babel-o-drome is a multimedia and multilingual audience participatory event presented in situ by collectif BUS 1.2.3. in collaboration with the Element choir. The site-specific interactive performance looks at the following question: in today's globalized media chaos, in a world where fiction and reality (real and virtual) collide with "alternative facts" and "fake news", what is our own reality ... how do we define ourselves when confronted with commercial and political propaganda that tells us what to believe? Combining poetry, humour and fantasy, this theatrical and choral show continues the dialogue about the immigrant experience shifting between cultures, and explores the complexities of language, communication and identity.
