An Evening on River Styx

An adaptation to the painting "The Garden of Earthly delights"

On the river leading to hell, we meet Adam.

Adam’s destiny is doomed, but he will keep negotiating it until his last breath.

 

AN EVENING ON RIVER STYX is an excerpt from a play in development. The project follows the painting THE GARDEN OF EARTHLY DELIGHTS by Hieronymus Bosch, a 15th-century triptych that depicts humanity a moment before the biblical flood. The piece invites audience members to step into the world of the painting and become the people in the garden.
