Building Babel

Last weekend, I had the great pleasure of performing in Babel, a new acro-dance-theater piece co-created by WT McRae and Jeremy Williams. Bodies as building blocks, creating towers and structures — climbing, yielding, flying, falling — Babel tells the story of a tower, built so high it offends god. God divides the people who build it and gives them separate languages so that they cannot build again. The piece explores the human desire to create, the necessity of communication, and how human ambition can overcome adversity. We had our premiere at Gibney Dance Center, as part of APAP, to sold out houses! Thanks to all who came out to support the work.
