Performed by Amsterdam's Toneelgroep theatre company in Dutch with English surtitles, this double bill starts with After the Rehearsal, a story about a controlling director obsessed with his work. Next, Persona is about a famous actress who suddenly becomes mute. This Barbican premiere will be staged on a set that shifts from minimalist to 'scenically breathtaking'.
Van Hove is vocal about his enthusiasm for Bergman's films so we look forward to seeing how the dramaturg transforms them for the stage. Fans of the avant garde director, book fast; this double bill is only in London for four performances.
Public booking for After The Rehearsal/Persona opens at 10am on Monday 16 May.
