Shadow performance.

Borrowing its title from a painting by Hieronymus Bosch, this interactive shadow performance explores the 16th century notions of the relationship between heaven and hell and the contemporary experience of life in urban centres. To which pleasures and tragedies are we exposed every day? What are our dreams and nightmares? What happens when we want to realize these dreams or escape these nightmares?
