"Babel (words)"


"Returning to Memorial Hall following his 2010 'Sutra' production, Flemish-Moroccan choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui presents 'Babel (words),' which fuses Western contemporary dance with movement styles from around the world. With Hindu rhythms by Mahabub and Sattar Khan, Kodo drumming by Shogo Yoshii and medieval music by Gabriele Miracle and Patrizia Bovi - and a stunning set by visual artist Antony Gormley - enliven the performance, as 11 dancers and the five musicians explore links between ethnicity and identity, the concept of God, the myths that shape our belief systems and human striving for the divine."
