BaBeL Workshops - Backbone Resident Sign Up

BaBeL is a spectacle born out of biblical mythology. A homage to each unique human identity. A song to the richness of diversity. A celebration of the languages of all the inhabitants of earth.

Backbone welcomes three world renowned performance makers to collaborate with Brisbane artists to culminate Backbone Festival - How Soon Is Now. Younes Bachir (Andante Method) previously of La Fura dels Baus, and Deborah Leiser-Moore, of Tashmadada, and with the special collaboration of Alejandro Rolandi (Strings Attached) will be working with local Brisbane artists over two weeks to create BaBeL.

Workshops will run for two weeks, with a one-off public performance of BaBeL on Saturday 27 October on the greens of our venue, East Brisbane Bowls Club.

BaBeL is a large-scale spectacle unlike anything Brisbane has seen before. Now is your chance to work exclusively with Younes, Deborah and Alejandro to bring this project to life.

Participants will work with Deborah Leiser-Moore (Present Performer) and Younes Bachir (Andante Method) for the morning. In the afternoon, participants will work with Younes (Andante Method) and Strings Attached (Areal Works).

You will be working with Andante Method and Strings Attached full time.
