MysteryMagnet

Out of the darkness on stage, a procession of surreal images step into the light, setting performers and objects in motion. Renowned for creating anarchic, animated sculptures on stage, Belgian visual artist and theatre-maker Miet Warlop lets her vivid imagination run riot in this exuberant new performance. 

Mystery Magnet draws our attention towards a panoramic space, a stage on which Warlop unleashes a fantastical succession of images, evoking a demented world where humour is born from sadness and magic from the prosaic. 
 
Inspired by contemporary animation, Mystery Magnet’s dazzling panoply of characters, animals and machines conjure a wordless universe where freakish cuteness and cartoonish cruelty lead to a startling and unforgettable performance. 

A CAMPO PRODUCTION WITH KUNSTENFESTIVALDESARTS, BRUSSELS & GÖTEBORGS DANS & TEATER FESTIVAL PROJECT CO-PRODUCED BY NXTSTP, WITH THE SUPPORT OF THE CULTURE PROGRAMME OF THE EUROPEAN UNION; IN COLLABORATION WITH VOORUIT, GENT.
