Babel: a point of confusion; the hum made by the sound of many voices
Night: the period between dusk and sunrise

What to expect

Babel Nights are an uplifting and joyous way to confront the challenges of the modern world. Babel hold these periodically throughout the year and they’re bursting with generosity, openness and a desire to unpick the sticking points.

This will be their first Babel Night online and has been called with the provocation of an end of year get together for theatre companies, artists, creatives and arts professionals, a forum discussion that feels like a party, themed on Collaboration, what do we want from next year? How do better support and celebrate each other and our communities going forward?

There will be music, general discussions, some breakout rooms, a chance to make new connections and perhaps start the new year with a new team at our back.

It is refreshing to see a company that treats its audience as intelligent enough to decipher what is unfolding – nothing is spelled out nor does it need to be: we’ve all been through this and probably still are in one way or another since, like the action before us, we are mesmerised by the shackles life dangles around us. The power in the piece is how much it is still dancing around in my mind many hours on” – Review of The Fall (work in progress), Mark Davoren. Editor, North West End

Workshop participants – Sichuan Contemporary Performance Art Festival November 2019:

It was such a memorable experience for me. I felt like we made a small family in the group

I learned so much about myself and how I’m not really paying attention to my thoughts. The workshop was like a real treasure for me

Thank you for the workshop it will become an amazing memory for me. Actually my spine encountered some accident before and I hadn’t been able to really participate in more training, but your workshop showed me if I pay attention to how I’m feeling and if I’m aware then I can move forward.

The feeling of really being connected to all the people, was strong for me. Working as the group felt powerful. I could feel my performance become more open and relaxed over three days.
