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.


As of Saturday 20.11, there will be new COVID safety measures in place that also apply to our performance. Make sure you take the necessary precautions before visiting this event.

  • Every visitor over 12 years of age will need to show a valid COVIDSafe Pass. In order to be COVID Safe, you have to be fully vaccinated, or have performed a valid COVID test within the last 72 hours (PCR-test) or 48 hours (rapid antigen test). You can read all government regulations regarding the certificate here.
  • Face masks are mandatory for every visitor over 12 years of age, and at all times (including during the performance). Exceptions can be made in the cafetaria, when sitting down to eat or drink. 
  • The obligation to wear a mask also extends to all staff members and artists. We will make an exception for the musicians at certain points during the performance. In this case we'll make sure to keep a safe distance from the audience. All artists will be tested on a daily basis. Furthermore, the performance space at Dommelhof is equipped with a high-quality ventilation system.

Do you have any questions about the event or the new regulations? Send us a mail and we'll gladly help you out:

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.

Babelut Parcours is a concept of Musica, Impulse centre for Music.

ZIMZUM is a co-production between Musica, C-TAKT, ensemble Down The Rabbit Hole, dramatist Koen Haagdorens, Frédéric Verrières and Tina Heylen.
