babble of babel

french festival blasted off with a great art dance show titled 'Babel' in Penang at the Auditorium P.Ramlee. It really exceeded my expectation. 6 dancers, 4 male, 2 female. great hip hop combined with traditional beautifully choreographed with several theme. it is just so darn good and great. Bravo to Najib Guerfi, the dancer and director of this dance. They danced on the stage and on scaffold. Rather dangerous.

there were not much of parking space at that place and so i went there early with my pal, Gab and his gf. Gab was saying that Babel is a tower stated in the bible, where the united people of certain place wanted to build it to reach somewhere and perhaps have a forum with God. In response, God made the 'united' people speak different languages and therefore, confusing or splitting them.
According to the narrative in Genesis Chapter 11 of the Bible, the Tower of Babel was a tower built by a united humanity to reach the heavens. Because man had it in his heart to be like God, God stopped this project by confusing their languages so that each spoke a different language. As a result, they could no longer communicate with one another and the work was halted. The builders were then scattered to different parts of Earth. This story is used to explain the existence of many different languages and races.
going for the theater this friday.. hopefully it will be a blast, too..
