ABOUT THE SHOW
A new immersive dance show created by Keone & Mari Madrid and Hideaway Circus will premiere in San Diego, California this September titled Beyond Babel. Starring Keone and Mari in the lead roles, the production is inspired by the classic tale of Romeo & Juliet and current social stories from all over the world. Beyond Babel is told entirely through the style of West Coast Urban Dance and will begin preview performances this September in a new immersive theater space near Downtown San Diego.
Beyond Babel is about the division of families, friends, and a community of people as authorities decide to build a wall between them. We follow two divinely linked lovers as they reconcile with the rising tensions of a populace cut in half. The show is set to a contemporary soundtrack and features a cast of twelve elite dancers.
The production features a special immersive seating design; the orchestra sections move forwards and backwards laterally throughout the theater. Since the orchestra seat sections move, the audience experiences multiple perspectives of the performers and sets. Beyond Babel features large crochet backdrops, art installations, and yarn-based props created by artist London Kaye.
