Miet Warlop Brussels

Fruits of Labor

Miet Warlop sways between theatre and the visual arts. At the Kunstenfestivaldesarts 2012, she presented Mystery Magnet, painting an explosive canvas of people and objects. This year, she brings Fruits of Labor, a sizzling performance of sculpture and music. In the centre is a runaway, beating drum set around which a life develops. Everything and everyone is constantly changing, dictated by the rhythm of the drum. A motley crew of musicians and performers puts its collective finger on the artery of the world. Warlop plays with the perception of time and cracks the laws of physics, cobbling together the broken pieces to achieve a new equilibrium. Fruits of Labor is a perpetual mobile that depicts the bottomless vortex of the world and breaks through the boundaries of theatre. It's a wild and crazy trip that absorbs and vibrates, shimmers and endures.
