Freud

In the late 1950s, Jean-Paul Sartre wrote The Freud Scenario at the behest of Hollywood director John Huston. Sartre completely immersed himself in the subject and in the end had written a script for a seven-hour film. Huston cut the many hundreds of pages down to a two-hour script, resulting in a row with Sartre, who eventually had his name removed from the credits. The script has remained untouched since then. Now, Ivo van Hove stages Sartre’s mammoth work in its entirety in a world premiere by the ITA in co-production with Antwerp’s Toneelhuis. Performed with English surtitles on Thursdays.
