Description:
Flemish director Ivo van Hove is the artistic director of Holland’s leading repertory company, Toneelgroep Amsterdam, and is known throughout Europe as one of the continent’s true theatrical innovators. At NYTW, van Hove previously directed visually rich and emotionally complex productions of More Stately Mansions (1997, OBIE award) and A Streetcar Named Desire (1999). This ingeniously imaginative director and his longtime collaborator, production designer Jan Versweyveld, return to NYTW with Ibsen’s masterpiece HEDDA GABLER, in a translation by Christopher Hampton. Elizabeth Marvel, who won an OBIE award for her portrayal of Blanche DuBois in van Hove’s production of Streetcar at NYTW, will play Hedda.

About the artists:
As a founding member of De Tijd, Ivo van Hove developed an eclectic repertory mixing both classic and neglected texts. In 1990, he became the artistic director of Het Zuildelijk Toneel which, under his leadership, quickly became one of the Netherlands’s most prominent national repertory companies. Ivo van Hove is also noted for staging texts from outside the theater, such as film scripts and opera librettos. Major recent international productions include stagings of John Cassavetes’s film Faces and Marguerite Duras’s India Song. For New York Theatre Workshop, Ivo van Hove directed Eugene O’Neill’s seldom seen More Stately Mansions (OBIE award for direction), Tennessee Williams’s A Streetcar Named Desire, and Susan Sontag’s Alice in Bed. Ivo van Hove led the Holland Festival for several years and is currently the artistic director of Toneelgroep Amsterdam.
