Loud, preposterous and extremely entertaining - THE NEW YORK TIMES

A frenetic tableau … Eliciting a massive ovation at Festival d’Avignon – THE GUARDIAN

“Run for your life, ‘till you die”

A concert, a competition, a celebration. A mesmerizing ritual about farewell, life and death, hope and resurrection. 

After Milo Rau, Faustin Linyekula, and Angélica Liddell, Belgian artist Miet Warlop confronted the question: “What is your story/history as a theatrical maker?” Formulating her answer with 12 performers, composed of a group of athletes and audience members, along with a commentator and a cheerleader, Warlop joined the series of Histoire(s) du théâtre initiated by Rau, which invites reexaminations of realities from theatrical perspectives. Singing, rapping, playing, and matching, they run for their life, sweating, and exhaust themselves with(in) one song, until every molecule of oxygen burns out.

One Song shows Warlop’s signature features of combining forms of movement and music, summoning rhythm, energy, affect, and sensation through the efforts of human bodies. From Fruits of Labor (2016) to Ghost Writer and the Broken Hand Break (2018), Warlop transformed physical spaces into places of spirit. Borrowing the stage from her early work Sportband / afgetrainde klanken (2005), a requiem for her late brother, One Song is a continuous quest for the meaning of life and togetherness, of unity in diversity, of particularity and universality. While pushing to the extreme, this work delves into the profound need of human beings: how to transcend our living bodies.

Miet Warlop, Belgium

Miet Warlop is a Belgian visual artist born in 1978 and holds a master’s degree in Visual Arts from KASK, Ghent. She gained acclaim for her graduation project Huilend Hert, Aangeschoten Wild, winning awards in 2004. Notable performances include Mystery Magnet, which won the Stückemarkt Theatertreffen Prize at the Berliner Festspiele in 2012. In 2014, she founded Miet Warlop / Irene Wool and premiered Dragging the Bone. Her work, like Fruits of Labor (2016) and Ghost Writer and the Broken Hand Break (2018), blends visual art and performance. During the Covid lockdown, she launched Slamming Doors, an online series. Warlop's performances have toured Europe and beyond, exploring the tension between static images and live action, often incorporating props and time. Musicians and actors interchange roles, as seen in her award-winning performance One Song, which has toured globally since 2022.
