About Ivo van Hove

Since his emergence from the Flemish avant-garde movement of the 1980s, Ivo van Hove‘s directorial career has crossed international boundaries, challenging established notions of theatre-making. He has brought radical interpretations of the classics to America and organic acting technique to Europe.

“Ivo van Hove Onstage” is the first full English language study of one of theatre’s most prominent iconoclasts. It presents a comprehensive, multifaceted account of van Hove’s extraordinary work, including key productions, design innovations, his revolutionary approach to text and ambience, and his relationships with specific theatres and companies.
