The first week, taking place in London at the Bush Theatre, will present live podcast shows, cabaret, music, and more. The second week, presented through a collaboration between the Bush Theatre, Harlem stage in New York, Pequeno Ato in São Paulo, and Market Theater in Johannesburg, will raise questions related to land, migration, exile, and language.
The Bush Theatre seeks to provide a stage to outstanding new playwrights in an environment that prioritizes diversity and inclusion.
International artistic collaboration, like that forged through BABYLON: Beyond Borders, is a driving impulse for SNF’s Summer Nostos Festival. Last year’s festival featured Greek-Jamaican R&B singer Lianne La Havas, a tribute to Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson by the American Contemporary Music Ensemble, and DJs from around Africa, among many others.
