Garden of Earthly Delights

17 Jan

Well, it has been eons since I’ve written anything here. Since I last wrote, I’ve gotten married, been to Spain, changed day jobs, spent two weeks in Wilmington, DE for work, and…whew. That’s enough of an update on the personal end of things.

Tonight, M. is taking me to Martha Clarke’s Garden of Earthly Delights. On our honeymoon, we gaped at Bosch’s masterpiece in the Prado, but had to jostle with the expected swarm of tourists to enjoy all its bulbous glory. Now we are going to see this dance based on the painting, originally performed in 1985 and now resurrected for your viewing pleasure. The website has a fun feature where you can click on each part of the painting’s triptych and gaze at all Bosch’s details, both glorious and horrible. (Click on “the painting”.) Enjoy!
