The Garden of Earthly Delights
A theatre project about the lure of the archaic
Actor and puppet-maker Marc Schnittger, inspired by Hieronymus Bosch’s late medieval painting »The Garden of Earthly Delights«, presents an imaginative combination of puppet theatre, play and sound world: a sensual and spectacular panorama of human longing.
An illustrious group of bizarre characters follows a mysterious individual who knows the neighbourhood into the wilderness. These pleasure-seekers are all looking for an auspicious clearing where their innermost wishes are to be granted. But the expedition ends up in the swamp of their inner worlds. A grotesque biblical flight of the imagination about a civilisation looking for the meaning of life.
This theatre project hinges around the mysterious »The Garden of Earthly Delights« triptych by Hieronymus Bosch.
