Forthcoming - Available for Pre-Order, Check Format + Release Date


Two horses in a neigh-scent relationship, a vacant treehouse in need of a tenant, and a human with a grape for a head: in Corinne Donly's buoyant adaptation of Hieronymus Bosch's 15th century triptych The Garden of Earthly Delights, syllables combine to make words and people to make lovers. An elegy to vestiges, a paean to puns, and a theater of peace, Wood Calls Out to Wood pursues Bosch's old paradise through a new alchemy of love, language, and radical tenderness.
