Beyond Babel Immersive Dance Show Makes World Debut In San Diego

A new immersive dance show created by Keone & Mari Madrid and Hideaway Circus makes its world debut this month in San Diego. Starring Keone and Mari in the lead roles, the production is inspired by the classic tale of Romeo & Juliet and current social stories from all over the world.

The Story

BEYOND BABEL is about the division of families, friends, and a community of people as authorities decide to build a wall between them. We follow two divinely linked lovers as they reconcile with the rising tensions of a populace cut in half. The show is set to a contemporary soundtrack and features a cast of twelve elite dancers.

The production features a special immersive seating design: the orchestra sections move forwards and backwards laterally throughout the theater. Since the orchestra seat sections move, the audience experiences multiple perspectives of the performers and sets. BEYOND BABEL also features large crochet backdrops, art installations, and yarn-based props created by acclaimed artist London Kaye.

Keon and Mari’s Notable Works

Keone and Mari Madrid, San Diego residents,are the co-creators and stars of BEYOND BABEL. They are dancers and choreographers, teachers and creatives, and husband and wife, individually starting out on their own paths and eventually finding each other through dance.

This amazingly talented couple’s notable work includes starring in/choreographing for:

  • Justin Bieber’s “Love Yourself” music video
  • New York Times Square Billboard
  • The Ellen Show
  • So You Think You Can Dance
  • Mark Ronson
  • Flying Lotus & Kendrick Lamar
  • SKY: A 3D Musical
  • Dancing With the Stars
  • Nominations for best choreography at the MTV Video Music Awards and the UK Video Music Awards
  • Multiple champions at major dance competitions
  • Global dance instructors and more!
