Talk: Ivo Van Hove and Michael Billington

In partnership with The Guardian

Ivo van Hove is one of the world’s greatest theatre directors. Alongside sell-out shows in the West End (All About Eve) and on Broadway (Network, a production that originated at London’s National Theatre), Van Hove is bringing his work to Manchester for the first time as part of MIF19. The Festival is proud to be presenting the UK premiere of his gripping and controversial adaptation of Ayn Rand’s novel
The Fountainhead, a major inspiration for libertarian politicians on both sides of the Atlantic, and Re:Creating Europe, a specially conceived project exploring our continent through the speeches and texts that have shaped, traced and defined its history and featuring the award-winning actor Juliet Stevenson.

In this one-off lunchtime event, presented by MIF in association with Guardian Live, Ivo van Hove spoke to Michael Billington, The Guardian’s theatre critic, about his life and work.

Produced by Manchester International Festival. Presented in association with Guardian Live.
