On the stage stands a house. It emits colourful wisps of smoke and shortly afterwards a man in green appears with a rubbish bag in his hand, ready to put it outside. The house is a springboard, a trampoline for the imagination. Are we ready for the leap into the unknown?
In Miet Warlop’s studio and imaginary world, everything is in constant motion. Components fuse together into one great swirling transformation. Characters and images from one production turn up in another. Sometimes they start to lead a life of their own. Twelve years after the premiere off the successful performance Springville, Warlop has taken the production up again as a memory that has to be relived or a song of her own that she wants to cover with a new group. She’s ready for it. The time is right. Some questions remain.
Sometimes you want to say something again, years later. Because the issues have not been resolved. Because in the meantime you have grown older and have made and experienced other things. Because it can be done better and more precisely, with more breathing space and less waste. Because it’s worth seeing once again. Or just for the renewed pleasure of performing it.
