About the show

The Tank presents this experimental adaptation of Hieronymus Bosch's 15th century triptych 'The Garden of Earthly Delights,' a painting presented as a play, a landscape turned into a soundscape. More…

Written in language that is both precise and deeply silly, the play experiments with the possibilities of combination--of single syllables combining to make words and single people combining to make couples. At first, the audience encounters it as they would a picture hanging on a distant wall, in large swaths of color and pattern. When taking a closer look, however, strange Boschian beings begin to emerge: Two horses in a neigh-scent relationship, a vacant treehouse in need of a tenant, and a human with a grape for a head.

It is an exercise in the fun, lively, innovative, experimental, weird, often i...
