What is your history as a theatre maker? At the invitation of NTGent, visual artist Miet Warlop formulates an answer as only she can. In the series
Histoire(s) du Théâtre she is the fourth director to accept the challenge of a creation in which present, past and future meet each other in an inspiring way – after Milo Rau, Faustin Linyekula and Angélica Liddell.

ONE SONG - Histoire(s) du Théâtre IV  is set in the unique universe of Warlop.
A group of performers enters the arena for a mesmerizing ritual about farewell, life and death, hope and resurrection. Together they go through extremes: through sung text, images and objects, oxygen and sweat, they evoke our condition humaine. Again and again, someone stands up to push their boundaries. They defy time and give expression to a deep human need: the moment when we can transcend our thinking body.

“A frenetic tableau… eliciting a massive ovation at Festival d’Avignon”
Andrew Todd - The Guardian ***

Through the metaphor of a live competition/concert, including a commentator and a cheerleader, Miet Warlop invites us 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.
