Last night I had one of the most memorable, awe-striking theatre experiences of my life. Martha Clarke's Garden of Earthly Delights is a dance/aerial piece based on Hieronymus Bosch's legendary triptych. I don't even want to say too much about it, because the visuals, choreography, and live music are so surprising and inventive, and frankly, a bit difficult to put into words. I will say it is a living phantasmagoria that is NOT TO BE MISSED. It is minimalist and decadent at once, intense and sublime, with undulating shapes and mesmerising stage pictures that sink deep into the psyche. (Also, it could be a great Valentine's date, provided you and your beloved like your sensuality accented with a bit of the grotesque.) It's up at the Minetta Lane Theater through March 1st. I truly cannot recommend this enough, GO SEE IT.
