92nd Anniversary Teatro Rivoli

Miet Warlop / Irene Wool

ONE SONG: Histoire(s) du Théâtre IV



National premiere



Through the metaphor of a live competition/concert, including a commentator and a cheerleader, Miet Warlop invites the audience to form a community and lift each other up, as in a celebration. The temporary thus becomes the universal, and the personal becomes something of the collective. That is the subtext of ONE SONG: how one song can give meaning to a whole society. Unity in diversity. — Miet Warlop / Irene Wool

Author's bio text

Miet Warlop is a Belgian visual artist born in Torhout, in 1978. Miet holds a master degree in Multimedial Arts from KASK, Ghent. Many other performances, actions and projects followed and in 2005 she premiered SPORTBAND / Afgetrainde Klanken a 40min performance with 20 people racing against time through music and sports. She moved to Berlin for three years, to concentrate on her visual work and prepare a new piece called Mystery Magnet, which premiered at KunstenFestivalDesArts in May 2012. Mystery Magnet has played more than 100 times all over the world, including Teatro Rivoli, in 2015, and was nominated for Theatertreffen Berlin for finding a new way of making stage-arts. In 2014 Miet Warlop started her own legal structure, Irene Wool. In 2015 she opened the festivities that celebrated the 50 years of Beursschouwburg, in Brussels, with a Rocket Piece that took of to the grit. Also, Art Gallery Barbican, in London, asked her for a performance in the project Station to Station, hosted by Doug Aitken. While touring her solo Dragging the Bone and celebrating the 100th show of Mystery Magnet in Ghent, Porto and Bordeaux, she finished the year by opening her first solo exhibition project in KIOSK gallery, in Ghent. In addition to her performance work for theatre venues, Miet Warlop has created an ever-growing cycle of visual art performances, interventions and live installations.
