Red Nose Company

Babylon

”Babylon is a five-star hit. The clowns show that the magic of theatre is ultimately based on simplicity:
a spotlight, a talented performer and a tiny red nose.”
Laura Kytölä, Helsingin Sanomat newspaper

A delightful combo of laughs and lethal observation, the autobiographical Babylon aims a female gaze at the practices of power and sexual control. Historical figures from Catherine the Great to President Trump take the stage in a hilarious fashion, as actresses Minna Puolanto and Hanna Seppä along with director Marielle Eklund-Vasama raise the apt questions of why do we need hierarchies, why can’t we live in a truly equal society, and what kind of power is good and uncorrupting.
