Vlaams Cultuurhuis De Brakke Grond

Big Bears Cry Too is a performance about the vulnerability of man in the large, elusive universe. A series of objects literally flies onto the scene and tries to say something about the individual in the world, like a large plastic heart that can only be contained by letting out a little bit of air. Or a giant pill that should make you happier, but puts you in a state where you no longer recognize yourself. Or a bear that falls victim to its own excessive cuteness. We land in a universe of coloured rain and infinite drawings. 

Springville, Dragging the Bone, Mystery Magnet, Fruits of Labor. Visual artist and theatre maker Miet Warlop has created quite a number of succesful productions. Big Bears Cry Too is her first production made for an audience from 6 years old and up.
