›Mystery Magnet‹ is a performance by Belgian visual artist and theatre maker Miet Warlop made of moments of fragile illusionism, where fantasy and reality coexist. Sketching out a haunted world where humour is born from sadness and magic from the prosaic, seemingly unconnected figures, sculptures, tableaux vivants emerge from the darkness of the stage like theatrical creatures entering a terrain where freakish cuteness and desensitised cruelty, glittering promises and unstoppable destruction share a common space.

›Mystery Magnet‹ was presented in 2014 at the Stückemarkt festival spotlighting young contemporary playwrights within the context of the Berlin Theatertreffen. The jury report praised Miet’s grip on theatricality, humor and her unique visual signature.
