75 min (no intermission)

Created at Theaterfestival Boulevard, 's-Hertogenbosch, Netherlands, August 4, 2016*

Here is a choreography in three acts from the famous triptych The Garden of Earthly Delights.

Act 1: The Garden of Delights (central panel)
Act 2: Hell (right panel)
Act 3: Paradise (left panel)

Just as a choreographer can start with a piece of music in order to create, I am starting with the painting by Bosch.

And just as a choreographer can choose to "stick" to a musical score (or not), I have chosen to "stick" to Bosch's painting, its spirit.

The joy of bowing before a masterpiece!
