Ivo Van Hove Tackles Ayn Rand

Renowned theatre innovator and director Ivo Van Hove courts the controversial philosophical storm that is Ayn Rand's The Fountainhead in his latest rendition of the heavy-hitting drama. A tale of ambition, individualism, idealism and sex, this thought-provoking piece sits at the center of BAM's 2017 Next Wave Festival.

Van Hove transports the action from the art deco of the 20s to a modern, co-working loft, where famed New York architect and utopian visionary Howard Roark enters into a passionate love-triangle with femme fatale Dominique Francon. Overhead cameras add to the mounting tensions as they capture every angle of this dynamic social and political juggernaut.
