MOVEMENTS 1&2
by james gordon king

A dream-like exploration into the personal and collective ideas of revolution. 

A lot of politics is talk. Olivia and Jeremy attempt to subvert this idea through the creation of a political movement unencumbered by language. Without a name or a title, they’re a movement of pure action and intention. 

But when outside forces conspire to shut the movement down, Olivia and Jeremy have to choose whether ideological independence is more important than their movement’s ultimate success. 

Seamlessly flowing between dream and reality, scripted performance and improvisation, Movements 1&2 is a bold piece of theatre that hedges bets on its uncategorizable quality.

It’s fantastic because what Babelle Theatre chooses not to do is exactly what makes it so compelling. It encourages you to give up what you take for granted about theatre, so that you may actually experience it.
