Miet Warlop (Belgium)

Miet Warlop (Belgium)


A restaging of Miet Warlop’s iconic work after 12 years of its world premiere. With the lightness of a cartoon, the tragic story of a failed community is told, the show is perfect to visit with the whole family. 

In it, an explosive narrative unfolds around a colourful-smoking cardboard house, its inhabitants and the neighbourhood: an elegant walking table that would like nothing better than to be set, a man who wants to take out the trash, a frustrated fuse box and a very long pair of pants go through big and small dramas with varying degrees of slapstick and disaster potential. With the lightness of a cartoon, the tragic story of a failed community is told. And because all this could hardly be more topical, Warlop has restaged her iconic work premiere under the title After All Springville.

Miet Warlop is a Belgian visual artist living between Ghent and Brussels. She received a master’s degree in visual arts from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of Ghent. In 2004, she won the Jury Prize of the KASK Franciscus Pycke and the Young Theatre award of the Ostend Theater Aan Zee with Huilend Hert. Her reflection about theatre as an artistic form has led to a physical approach where one can find elements reminiscent of her previous plays: the concert as ritual, the effort, the repetition, the objects.

Everything in Miet Warlop’s artistic practice is connected, be it implicitly or explicitly. She sees her work as a cycle, just like life. Her latest production, “One Song”, in collaboration with NTGent Theatre, was chosen by many experts as one of the 10 best stage productions in 2022.
