Young Vic helps to give BABEL its voice

Groups from the Young Vic are working together with BAC, Lyric Hammersmith, Theatre Royal Stratford East and WildWorks to give a voice to BABEL – the epic and immersive theatrical experience that will fill Caledonian Park in Islington in May (8-20).

A re-working of the BABEL story, one of the key themes of the show is: with so many different backgrounds and languages in London, how can we communicate with each other? The cast of 300 have been looking at using music and song as a way to universally talk to people, finding a voice that anyone from anywhere where in the world can understand.

Have a listen to the harmony chorus clip here to hear the sound that runs through the heart of BABEL.

BABEL is part of World Stages London – a once-in-a-lifetime celebration through theatre of the exhilarating cosmopolitan diversity of London’s people and culture.
