Some birds build a nest and choose to stay in it forever. Others are restless and fly back and forth. In summer they are here, in winter they stay there. There are ne’er-do-wells, wanderers, worriers, fortune-seekers and wildlings.
But what happens when birds of different feathers flock together? Do they communicate? Do they understand each other? Do they think the other one is an odd bird, and push it out of their nest? Or, do they share their dreams and make room for each other?
Grau Good goo…!
Gree Bon bon…!
Jabberbabble is a show about four birds and one nest. Nobody understands their jibber jabber lingo. But what if we don’t speak the same language, but still manage to understand each other? Maybe, before long, we won’t be strangers anymore.
Jabberbabble is a family show for all ages. The show is entirely sung, as it should be with birds.
