Dinner show with music, cabaret, acrobatics
Twelve artists from twelve European countries and regions have joined together in a collaborative production that blends music, spoken word, dance and video art, resulting in a joint European piece.
The work has been shaped by the experiences of the last months, by creative isolation, by the challenges posed to artistic existence, but also by the solidarity and creativity that has forged new paths on the internet. Along with the Bobby Rausch band from Berlin, the production is joined by artists from Belgium, the Czech Republic, Finland, France, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.
The evening was originally planned for 15 May as part of the Europe Week event. After public events came to a halt months ago due to COVID-19, the pleasure is all the greater that despite the particular circumstances, Babylon Europa can take place with the same artistic intensity. In compliance with the currently applicable hygiene regulations, there is a limitation to the number of audience members on site. However, the programme will be available for live-stream viewing.
BABYLON EUROPA is a project by EUNIC Berlin, the European Union National Institutes for Culture, and is made possible with generous support by the Senate Department for Culture and Europe.
