Ivo van Hove directs a unique performance on identity politics

Sign of the Times 4: The Struggle for Identity – 2 June 20:30 at Stadsschouwburg Amsterdam

Are you European, Western, French, female, migrant, black, queer? Identity questions traditional views on culture and history. When does identity function as an emancipatory idea that brings people together in a joint struggle for equality? And how does identity increase the gap between different groups in society.

World-famous director Ivo van Hove, together with Toneelgroep Amsterdam, presents a unique theatre performance on the most important socio-political issue in today’s society: identity. With a lecture from political scientist Mark Lilla, author of the controversial work The Once and Future Liberal: After Identity Politics (2017)
