After all Springville: Disasters and amusement parks

That's the title of Miet Warlop's latest production. I went to see her at Les Brigittines contemporary art centre Brussels. I was left amazed by the number of special effects. Things exploding, falling down, popping out, floating up,... as well as the many subtle humorous elements that were really appreciated throughout the whole performance (not only by me, the whole crowd seemed pretty agitaded!).

What stuck with me the most, is the almost childish nature of it all. It seemed as if the piece was created for the sole purpose of making big children laugh, by constantly taking them by surprise and pulling of silly (but very effective) jokes. You can imagine then, that this was a very colorful performance.
