Sous la toile de Jheronimus

Creation 2017 | On tour
Compagnie Les Colporteurs pursues its artistic adventure under the big top around the work of the painter Jérôme Bosch and more particularly around the triptych The garden of the delights.
Bosch's paintings express in depth the beauty of human nature and soul but also the pain and suffering undergone by lost human beings.
If, as Shakespeare put it, the stage is the mirror of humankind, it is also a suitable place where to overcome collective fear, claim dignity, celebrate expression and call for freedom.
The Garden of Earthly Delights stands out in Jérôme Bosch's paintings as it was not commissioned by the church, and eludes all dogmas, theological judgments or religious stances.
The painter then positions himself as an observer of the world, getting swept into his wandering imagination, he offers us a fresco in which a utopian wonderful freedom meets the nightmarish cruel darkness of the world.
We find this attitude interesting and inspirational to create a tragicomic metaphor of his work in a show. It will be made up of five movements : the creation of the world, when man and woman meet, knowledge and delight, awareness and blindness, and the end of the cycle, the mysterious future !

The contemporary performance of the company echoes within us the deep-seated feeling to belong to a Mother Earth, whose future is definitely hanging by a thread.
