BOSCH DREAMS

A fantastic journey through surreal imagery that delves into Bosch’s fabulous and saturated universe.

Bosch Dreams pays homage to the painter Hieronymus Bosch and the surrealist movement he inspired. Pictures come to life right in front of you as the amazing acrobatic artists unleash their playfulness across a fascinating 3-dimensional canvas of projected videos created by the French-Argentine video artist, Ange Potier. His magic-realist video projections encompass everything that characterizes both Bosch and the surrealist movement.

The Dutch painter Hieronymus Bosch is renowned for his wondrous paintings with peculiar people and imaginative animals. The painter’s death 500 years ago is marked by celebrations throughout 2016 worldwide and especially in his hometown ‘s-Hertogenbosch, the Netherlands. The Jheronimus Bosch 500 foundation and Festival Circolo in the Netherlands initiated circus productions inspired by the painter.

Les 7 Doigts, in collaboration with Republique, were asked to create an anniversary show that world-premiered at Republique before going on a tour of 24 shows at the leading theatres in the Netherlands and Belgium.
