  • The director of the Toneelgroep in Amsterdam since 2001, Ivo van Hove has directed over a hundred shows, plays, novel or film adaptations, musicals, and operas. From Sophocles to Bowie via Shakespeare, Duras, Miller, or Visconti, he has created a protean theatre revolving around human emotions in which everything, from the text to the stage, from the performers to the images and the music, comes together to create meaning: a theatre of urgency, subversive and never moralistic. The audience of the Festival d'Avignon knows him well: his last creation here was The Damned, with the actors of the Comédie-Française, in the Cour d'honneur of the Palais des papes.
