In an atmosphere dominated by humour and eroticism, this is an exploration of blurred attitudes, inspired by the world of the German painter. Beings, haunted by the convulsive memory of a former existence, appear behind a trompe l’oeil wall with windows riddled with holes… The actors and dancers appear through trompe l’oeil windows and create living paintings, gradually revealing a story of designs and obsessions from the Renaissance.
The company’s ‘classic’ performance, Les dernières hallucinations de Lucas Cranach l'Ancien is emblematic of Mossoux- Bonté’s fascination with image and detail.
The performance was premiered in January 1990 at the Theater de Synagoge in Tilburg (The Netherlands). Since then, it has seen two new versions and over 150 performances.
