'Ode aan de makers' (Ode to the makers) – Dutch documentary about Bosch Parade 2019
BOSCH PARADE HAS A NEW VISAGE
Bosch Parade 2019 honours its inspiration Jheronimus Bosch as a storyteller. His paintings are mysterious and idiosyncratic representations of his era. Jheronimus Bosch was also the first genre painter to give the common people a merited role in his paintings. In Bosch Parade 2019 that common people will reclaim its place.
You can conceptualise Bosch Parade 2019 as a visual story in fourteen tableaus. These form a universal fable about power and adversary, about conflict and connection, about chaos and hope. From the chaos after battle, a new order must blossom. Former opposites eventually form the basis for a new hope in this story that – like the works of Jheronimus Bosch – is riddled with symbolism and fantasy. This edition is a co-production with EELT Theatrecollective.
DNA BOSCH PARADE
Bosch parade tries to use professional art to connect people and to inspire and surprise as Jheronimus Bosch did 500 years ago, and still does today. In doing so, we let visitors look at the world as ‘contemporary Jheronimuses’, and make the world a little more unique and social. Bosch Parade’s DNA is comprised of originality, craftsmanship and expressiveness.
