On a quest in a language labyrinth

What if your little brother suddenly disappears? You go looking for him, right? But what if on your journey you end up in an old painting? And you have to make your way there through a labyrinth of corridors, stairs and rooms? And everyone you meet on your way speaks a foreign language?

Luckily, Jasmin is very resourceful, and she tries all kinds of ways to talk to the children she meets. With words, gestures and lots of music, a communication is established with the inhabitants of the painting. And will she find her little brother again? Come and see!

All the colors of Babel

During the performance, the painting "The Tower of Babel" by Pieter Bruegel the Elder forms a fairy-tale moving backdrop. The projection incorporates images of children speaking different languages, created through theater workshops with a class of non-native newcomers from De Mozaïek elementary school in Ghent.
