BWW Review: Van Hove's Take on Janacek's DIARY at BAM Is Audacious - But Not in a Goo Photo BWW Review: Van Hove's Take on Janacek's DIARY at BAM Is Audacious - But Not in a Good Way
by Richard Sasanow - Apr 9, 2019

“Audacious” can mean daring--and Belgian director Ivo van Hove certainly fits that description for his approaches to Arthur Miller's A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE and THE CRUCIBLE and numerous other theatre pieces. But when it came to Leos Janacek's DIARY OF ONE WHO DISAPPEARED, van Hove's work (with the Dutch company, Muziektheater Transparent) might take on another of the word's meanings: presumptuous and arrogant, perhaps, even disrespectful.

BWW Review: AVIGNON THEATRE FESTIVAL Presents DE DINGEN DIE VOORBIJGAAN By IVO VAN HO Photo BWW Review: AVIGNON THEATRE FESTIVAL Presents DE DINGEN DIE VOORBIJGAAN By IVO VAN HOVE
by Wesley Doucette - Jul 23, 2018

Has anyone embodied the industrial elegance of central European theatre more fully than Ivo Van Hove? His worlds are factory made with squares of glass, metal, and stone. His characters reside within an inescapable atmosphere of manufactured order. Whenever disorder breaks the mold, whether it be by cascading water and blood in his View From The Bridge, or by reams of black snow in De Dingen Die Voorbijgaan, now in performance at the Avignon Theatre Festival's Lycee Saint Joseph, its breach comes as a violent shock. Gazing at the looming black metal and industrial lighting yawning over Jan Versweyveld's slate tiled scenography, it's hard to imagine that this world could contain full people. However, such is the case in De Dingen Die Voorbijgaan which, within this environment devoid of softness creates a drama of the deepest intimacy and the most raw humanity. In Van Hove's glittering diadem of masterpieces, it is a particularly glowing jewel.
