Love affairs, isolation, heartache. Internationally renowned theatre director Ivo van Hove leads his powerful ensemble in an exploration of award-winning, Italian film director Michelangelo Antonioni’s groundbreaking 1960s film trilogy (L’Avventura, La Notte, L’Eclisse), in this epic adaptation for the stage.

Simultaneously performed, filmed and projected onto a giant screen, the show reinvents Antonioni’s portraits of bourgeois relationships in public and private settings. Multiple perspectives provide an intimate and visceral insight into the lives of the key characters depicted in the films as they wrestle with their emotions, indulge their passions and search for the truth.
Award-winning theatre company Toneelgroep Amsterdam returns to the Barbican following the impact of Roman Tragedies in 2009.
