BEYOND BABEL is a critically acclaimed new theatrical dance show created by Keone & Mari Madrid and Hideaway Circus. Following a hit run in San Diego, BEYOND BABEL is now playing a limited run Off-Broadway.
Inspired by Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet, BEYOND BABEL is about the division of families, friends, and a community of people as authorities decide to build a wall between them. We follow two divinely linked lovers as they reconcile with the rising tensions of a populace cut in half. The show is set to a contemporary soundtrack and features a cast of twelve elite dancers.
BEYOND BABEL also features large crochet backdrops, art installations, and yarn-based props by singular visual artist London Kaye, costume design by Carlis Pistol, and lighting design by Tony Award winner Jeff Croiter and Sean Beach.
