From the age of three months, babies begin to vocalise; in a purely physical and perceptive game, they explore the possibilities of their voice without the sounds they emit necessarily being addressed to anyone or carrying any particular meaning.
Babel Babel is a performance composed of children’s babble performed in various kindergartens since 2016. Using this sound material that displaces, repeats, distorts, Violaine Lochu reveals the richness and different sound layers of babble, the anticipator of language, evoker of imaginary or distant idioms or even non-human expressions, bearer of the pure pleasure of saying that brings it closer to poetry.
