Anna Raimondo puts the language on stage and she does it using a medium that do not allow subtitles, radio.
Occasional companion in Radio Papesse's course, we dedicate her a space to discover and listen to some of her most recent works; a space to lend our hear to the linguistic Babel that animates her production with collaborations from Morocco to Germany, from Italy to France, from Spain to Belgium.
Play Babel (37' 44")
Radio Performance produced in 2010 with the supporto of Radio Orange, Wien.
Play Babel is a radio performance on the forms of translations (verbal and not) as final point of a research on the field, in which a public of listeners are performers. An interactive radio show made by words, silences, soundscapes and music are part of this attempt to create a liquid communication moment over languages.
