Philippe Quesne / Vivarium Studio
Der Garten der Lüste
For his new large-scale theatre creation, which marks the twentieth anniversary of his company Vivarium Studio, Philippe Quesne has been inspired by the equally famous and enigmatic triptych by Hieronymus Bosch, the "Garden of Delights". The 15th century painter's fantastic allegories describe the radical upheaval of traditional, technical and political standards in a time of transition. The director gathers a team of actors, musicians and technicians who are ready to undertake a similar journey through time and into the present. In a place they find abandoned, they organise themselves in their own way as a community, using the things they find here and drawing on their own experiences, the memory of the place and the theatre.
