Since his emergence from the Flemish avant-garde of the 1980s, Ivo Van Hove's directorial career has crossed international boundaries, challenging established notions of theatre-making.
Ivo van Hove Onstage presents a comprehensive, multifaceted account of Van Hove's extraordinary work, including key productions, design innovations, revolutionary approach to text and ambience, and relationships with specific theatres and companies. One of theatre's most prominent iconoclasts, Van Hove has brought radical interpretations of the classics to America and organic acting technique to Europe. His extraordinary, transatlantic career has long warranted what is the first full English language study of his achievements.
