Things to do


Then the visit for the next 10 days of the play Bosch Dreams may be just the thing for you. The play BOSCH DREAMS pays homage to the painter Hieronymus Bosch and the surrealist movement he inspired.

The contemporary circus show performed by Les 7 Doigts de la Main takes you on an amazing surreal journey as magnificent imagery combined with dancing and mimic takes you virtually into Bosch’s fabulous and saturated universe. And the best is of course…NO Danish needed.

All his pictures come to life right in front of you as the acrobatic artists from Les 7 doigts de la Main simply play their way across a fascinating 3-dimensional canvas of projected videos created by the French-Argentine video artist, Ange Potier.

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. The world premiere takes place in Copenhagen until 17 September and continues to the Netherlands – home of Bosch- where the play will be performed at some of the leading theaters in the Netherlands.

BOSCH DREAMS is staged by Republique’s artistic director, Martin Tulinius and Les 7 Doigts de la Main’s co-artistic director, Samuel Tétreault. You will be taken through a magical universe that includes tales of Bosch’s life as well as revelations of his unique work.

Not for younger children, the theater recommends children should be at least 10 years old – and if you are not familiar with his paintings – maybe visit the site  to explore all the fantastic details in Bosch’ most famous painting, The Garden of Earthly Delights.
