• Place BRONKS - grote zaal

Big Bears Cry Too is a performance that deals with the vulnerability that people experience in this large and incomprehensible universe. A series of objects literally fly onto the stage, each with something to say about individuality in the world. There is a large – a too large – plastic heart that can only be restricted by letting a small amount of air out. Then there is a massive tablet that is supposed to make you happier, but the actual result is that you no longer recognise yourself. And then there is a bear that falls victim to its own excessive cuteness. We end up in a universe of coloured rain and never-ending symbols.

Springville, Dragging the Bone, Mystery Magnet, Fruits of Labor – each one an intriguing title of an equally intriguing show that was successfully unleashed upon the world in the last 15 years by artist and dramatist Miet Warlop. Her latest production, Big Bears Cry Too, marks her first production for an audience of six and older.

In Warlops wereld is de realiteit vloeibaar, transformeert alles voortdurend tot iets anders en brengt het besef van dat gebrek aan houvast een grote kwetsbaarheid met zich mee.
