A look back at Babelut Parcours ZIMZUM
In Babelut Parcours ZIMZUM, small children imagine themselves to be big and big people imagine themselves to be small. Through folding and stretching, everything is thrown out of proportion.
Babelut Parcours is a biennial musical experience for children aged 0 to 5 and their (grand)parents. International artists take the participants on a voyage of discovery full of music, sound installations and, above all, lots of interaction. Passively participating is not an option: the young visitors become little artists themselves and a source of inspiration for the actors, musicians and dancers.
Together with musical ensemble Down The Rabbit Hole, dramaturge Koen Haagdorens, composer Frédéric Verrières and theatre maker Tina Heylen, we are developing a brand new musical experience as a successor to IGLO and GOLD: Babelut Parcours ZIMZUM, in which we zoom in and out both auditorily and visually, from impressive to intimate and back again.
During the performance, the scenography transforms constantly. Move from a large room filled with loud electronics to a small room with intimate melody, and back again. The visual and musical play of the artists stimulates all your senses. In addition, it stimulates the little ones to explore on their own and actively participate in Babelut Parcours ZIMZUM.
ZIMZUM is a co-production between Musica, C-TAKT, ensemble Down The Rabbit Hole, dramatist Koen Haagdorens, Frédéric Verrières and Tina Heylen.
