De Toren van Babel

This track is part of my score for “De toren van Babel”, a theatre and dance performance made on location in a former water tower (tower, get it?) for Noorderzon Performing Arts Festival in Groningen.

Confusion of tongues at great heights
Tower of Babel Came from a special collaboration between actrice Dijanne Italianer, the Suriname native storyteller and poet Guillaume Pool, composer Thys and Italian dancer and choreographer Manuel Paolini.

A performance at an extraordinary location: the Watertower at the Noorderbinnensingel in Groningen. Language and communication are central and the makers discuss different elements such as text, movement and music. Or do they cause confusion of tongues?

This project was supported by Noorderzon, Het Houten Huis and NNT.
