Body Babel………….Cie 13/ Rosa Mei

Body Babel
Words are loaded pistols. Language is both memory and metaphor. In “Body Babel”, dance artists from across Europe (Belgium, Lithuania, Turkey, Slovakia, Armenia and Spain) explore the cultural semiotics of body language. How are our gestures, sense of touch and personal space affected by our cultural identity? How does body language act as a sort of cultural memory and define us as individuals? In a performance combining mental and physical virtuosity, two angels, a few Babylonians and faith healers seek out “the dangerous gesture.” Cross cultural psychology in a Tower of Babel.
