Miet Warlop (Mystery Magnet, After All Springville) returns with a musical competition. It is a collectivising ritual for leaving the past behind with hope.
A new project by this Belgian artist, who we have already seen in After All Springville and Mystery Magnet (winner of the Theatertreffen Stückemarkt awards at the Berliner Festspiele 2012). Twelve performers take part in a musical competition accompanied by a presenter and a cheerleader. They will form a community around a single song, and lift each other up until they are exhausted in order get ahead. A ritual of farewell, death, hope and resurrection, in which the personal becomes collective and one song can give meaning to an entire society, united in the diversity of humans of all ages.
One Song is the result of the question "what's your story as a theatre maker?" which the NTGent creative centre asked the artist. A co-production with the Teatre Lliure that makes up Chapter IV of their Historie(s) du théâtre and premières at the Avignon Festival in 2022.
Miet Warlop is one of today's leading avant-garde performing artists. Her shows, containing brushstrokes of silent humour, are at the intersection between the visual arts, performance and the theatre. She is also currently working on a new production, Delirium, in collaboration with the Kunstenfestivaldesarts and the Kaaitheater, which will première in the spring of 2024.
