Following her exuberantly anarchic Mystery Magnet in 2012, Miet Warlop returns to Dublin Theatre Festival with Fruits of Labor, a trippy crossover between theatre and concert, melding sculpture with music in a wild and crazy live performance.
Warlop is joined  on stage  by three musicians, and a roadie as this psychoactive parade of music and objects transform the entire stage – and the world – into an instrument.

Fruits of Labor revolves around a drum set whose rhythmic beats dominate the soundtrack and ultimately ensnare everybody and everything. In a world gone off the rails,  Warlop riff s on themes such as religion, martyrdom, slow- motion terrorism, romanticism, tradition, leadership, psychosis, time, drugs, trips and nature, dictating an artistic vision that absorbs and vibrates as much as it shimmers and endures.
Suitable for ages 16+
Contains loud sound effects and noise levels.
