A primal call to an absurd party marathon.

15 performers step on the stage and play the same song, again and again. A commentator bellows into a megaphone. The exhilarating pace carries through the performance and induces us to join in.

According to the New York Times, ONE SONG: Histoire(s) du Théâtre IV is one of the best productions of 2022, and it elicited a massive ovation at the Festival d'Avignon. The work is equal parts a dance marathon, a competition, and a festival. It is a wild and touching metaphor for the vicissitudes of life, and subtly tackles farewells, life and death, hope and rebirth.

ONE SONG is a part of Dutch - Belgian theatre NTGent's Histoire(s) du Théâtre IV -series that features invited directors’ works recounting their personal stories as theatre practitioners. Miet Warlop is a Belgian director and performing arts practitioner whose visually captivating multidisciplinary work is world-renowned. She challenges theatrical traditions, mixing different arts disciplines with unexpected and atypical topics.

The event is organized by Espoo City Theatre. The production is a part of Espoo City Theatre&Fest – Focus Gent's festival programme.
