Performance details

date time hall price tickets/availability


Featuring a huge bear, floating objects, a thrilling landing and colourful explosions, ‘Big Bears Cry Too’ promises to be a visual delight that challenges the limits of our children’s imagination.

Miet Warlop’s plays have garnered international praise for their visual originality, unique dramaturgy and absurd humour. Her show ‘Mystery Magnet’ was performed more than 120 times all over the world, and her latest production, ‘Fruits of Labour’, is another big hit. Now, she makes her first performance for children at hetpaleis.

Miet Warlop is a visual artist who lives and works in Ghent, Berlin and Brussels. Miet has been at Vooruit before with 'Mystery Magnet', 'Fruits of Labor' and more recently with the installation 'Tunnels of Thought / Amusement Park'. Since 2017 Miet has also become one of Vooruit's long-term residents.
