The Fountainhead

You’re likely to find yourself sky high, breathless and hypnotised’ – The New York Times

Ivo van Hove brings his Internationaal Theater Amsterdam ensemble to The Lowry to perform his most controversial work. The Fountainhead is a gripping adaptation of Ayn Rand’s uncompromising 20th-century classic, a major inspiration for libertarian politicians on both sides of the Atlantic.

The Fountainhead is a portrait of Howard Roark, a brilliant young architect who rejects easy routes to commercial success in favour of innovation and independence. It’s ‘a war of ideas’, in Van Hove’s words, encompassing art and architecture, commerce and capitalism. But it’s also a passionate hymn to individualism – and a dark, violent love story. Presented as a pre-Factory event, The Fountainhead receives its UK premiere at MIF19.

This event takes place at The Lowry, which has achieved Silver Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
