D'après J.-C

Herman Diephuis' dance piece, "D'après J.-C.", inspired by the religious paintings of the Renaissance representing the Virgin Mary and her son, revisits with grace and humor the illusory language of  bodies.

You get an idea in the photo here - where you see our friend Claire (and her partner, Julien ) in last night's performance - the duo has over 300 (!) poses. I especially enjoyed the hilarious multiplication of the loaves and fishes.

Thanks to GG from Switzerland (and Claire) for the tickets. Also a special mention to the first Dear Reader (you!) who can give me a link to the original painting from which this pose is taken (just add your answer in the comments. Merci.
