BOCHUM 〓 Director Ivo van Hove Named Artistic Director of Ruhrtriennial


The Ruhrtriennale, a German arts festival, has announced that Belgian director Ivo van Hove will be its next artistic director, succeeding Barbara Fry, former manager of the Zurich Theater, who will serve as artistic director from 2021 to 2023.

The Triennale is a comprehensive arts festival that has been held annually since 2002. It was founded at the suggestion of the late Gerard Mortier, who served as artistic director of the Salzburg Festival and the Opéra National de Paris.

The festival uses industrial heritage sites such as huge machine shops and coke factories in the Ruhr area centered on the industrial city of Bochum in western Germany as venues. The artistic director changes every three years.

Hove was born in 1958 in Heist-op-den-Berg, and is 63 years old. One of Europe’s leading directors, he has been artistic director of the International Theatre Amsterdam, the largest theater company in the Netherlands, since 2001, and was artistic director of the Holland Festival from 1998 to 2004.

He has created numerous international stage productions, including “Lazares,” which he was commissioned to direct by David Bowie; his stage production of “A View from the Bridge” by Arthur Miller, which premiered at the Odéon Theater in Paris in 2014, won the “Laurence Olivier Award” for best direction in the U.K. and the U.S. “Tony Award” for Best Direction of a Play.
