An international event, taking place in four different countries at the same time, connected via live stream.

Dates and Times: Tue 12 - Sat 16 Feb 2019, 19:00.

Four extraordinary theatres (London's Bush Theatre, New York's Harlem Stage, São Paulo's Pequeno Ato and Johannesburg's Market Theatre), each deeply rooted in its own community, collaborate and explore their relationship to Babylon and it’s meanings, from land and exile to migration and language. The outcome is performance that takes place simultaneously and projected via live stream to London, New York, Johannesburg and São Paulo.

The event will be built from four creative parts presented by each theatre and projected live on stage in the other countries. They will work with the different time zones to create a holistic event using live stream, involving live music and audience participation during the performance. This simultaneous event will celebrate cross-border solidarity and creativity.
