This latest opus by world-renowned Canadian choreographer Marie Chouinard (The Golden Mean, Orpheus & Eurydice) revels in the phantasmagoric imagery of Dutch iconoclast Hieronymus Bosch. From the famous tryptich "The Garden of Earthly Delights" (c. 1500), this choreography in three parts shifts ecstatically between creation and damnation as ten dancers enter the Garden of Earthly Delights: a tantalizing cornucopia of riddles, stories and fantasies. A veritable feast for the senses.

Act 1: The Garden of Delights
Act 2: Hell
Act 3: Paradise

"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!" - Marie Chouinard

"Marie Chouinard has an astonishing imagination. Her dance-theatre spectacles are always surprising"
