BABULUS BRINGS TOGETHER GWYN EMBERTON AND EDDIE LADD WITH CHOREOGRAPHERS LEE BRUMMER AND ISRAEL ALONI FROM SWEDISH DANCE COMPANY ILDANCE AND FINNISH CHOREOGRAPHER JOHANNA NUUTINEN AS PART OF ICODACO 2016 (INTERNATIONAL CONTEMPORARY DANCE COLLECTIVE) IN THIS INTIMATE DANCE THEATRE PRODUCTION. 

FIVE INTERNATIONALLY RECOGNISED DANCER-CHOREOGRAPHERS PRESENT THIS COMPELLING BUT RAW WORK.  COMING FROM VERY DIFFERENT ARTISTIC BACKGROUNDS AND WITH DIFFERENT CREATIVE VOICES, THEY EXPOSE THE JOYS, CHALLENGES AND PITFALLS OF MAKING A SHOW TOGETHER.

WITH DANCE, SONG AND STORYTELLING ACROSS MULTIPLE LANGUAGES, BABULUS QUESTIONS THE HOW AND WHY OF COMMUNICATION AND WHAT WE DO WHEN WE CANNOT HIDE BEHIND WORDS. IT ASKS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN OUR MEANS TO COMMUNICATE IS TAKEN AWAY FROM US, AND WONDERS IF CENSORSHIP AND SELF-CENSORSHIP ARE ONE AND THE SAME.
