The beeping and buzzing of technology, noisy traffic, the incessant shouting of social media – it never shuts up. Caught in this constant babble, how do we find stillness? 

Massive Company’s newest devised work, directed by long-time Massive collaborators Scotty Cotter and Carla Martell, takes us on an uplifting journey through the many interruptions of modern life.

Babble brings dynamic physicality, inventive imagery, a multilayered musical soundscape, and a formidable cast of 20 young South Auckland voices to the Māngere Arts Centre stage all drawing on the diverse experiences and stories from their own lives in the creation of this work.

“In our productivity age of perpetual motion, it’s increasingly hard to honour stillness, to build pockets of it into our lives, so that our faith in beauty doesn’t become half-hearted, lopsided, crippled.” — Pico Iyer
