BOSCH DREAMS pays homage to the painter Hieronymus Bosch and the surrealist movement he inspired. The contemporary circus show takes you on a fantastic journey through surreal imagery that delves into Bosch’s fabulous and saturated universe.

Pictures come to life right in front of you as the amazing acrobatic artists from Les 7 doigts de la Main 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, and Republique in collaboration with the Canadian contemporary circus company, Les 7 doigts de la Main, were asked to create an anniversary show that will world-premiere at Republique before going on tour to some of the leading theatres in the Netherlands.

BOSCH DREAMS’ grand format will lead you through a fantastical universe that includes tales of Bosch’s life as well as revelations of Bosch’s truly unique work.
