‘Babel is falling’ re-imagines the Tower of Babel and its fall. It is based on the myth of a tower high enough to reach the sky that offended God and caused to make the builders speak in different languages. The performance reflects on Babel’s desire of erection and what might its fall/collapse suggest. How would this fall be read from a feminist point of view? Would it signal an epistemological transformation, or as a condition of possibility for social change?
At the beginning of their second year, the students of the MA Choreography present choreographies that they have developed together with composition students from klangzeitort, the Institute for New Music at the Berlin University of the Arts and the Hanns Eisler Academy of Music. One choreography student and one composition student will test forms of interdisciplinary collaboration and develop projects on freely chosen themes.
The works will be shown in two different blocks in the studio hall of the HfM Hanns Eisler Berlin (Program 1) and in the HfS Ernst Busch on the Bühne Unten (Program 2).
