Digital views on language confusion.
The whole city speaks. A web of dialogues, conversations, discussions between people, through streets and buildings. 

At LTE Babylon, the mobile phone stands as an allegory for language confusion. 

5 actors move through Hamburg. They make calls, behave absently, dive into digital distance, indifferent to their physical environment. They pick up sounds, incidentals, speech fragments.

The audience stands in the tower and hears their recordings live. A choreography consisting of conversation segments, quotations, city noises and ring tones spins their pattern within the audience.

What do the actors say?
What are they silent about?
