We are participating in Brighton Fringe 2022 with an ambitious work that combines dance, spoken word, projection mapping, and chromakey.

The concept of this performance is based on the tale, “Tower of Babel” recorded in the Old Testament.

We will use excerpts of Yasunari Kawabata’s “One Arm,” Mimei Ogawa’s “The Black Tower,” and an automatic transcription of the breaking news of the 2001 terrorist attack on the Twin Towers.

We used speech-to-text software to automatically extract the words of the original news broadcast. The software algorithm produces a variety of linguistic errors, resulting in an incomprehensible string of sentences.

Through this work you can experience the confusion of language and the richness of images it evokes when free from human control.

With the rapid development of communication technology, we can instantly exchange words with someone far away. How will language change as we confront each other as anonymous “bodies” that have no contact with each other?

Take a peek through the camera at the process of dismemberment and reconnection of body and words !
