Howard Beale, news anchor-man, isn’t pulling in the viewers. In his final broadcast he unravels live on screen. But when ratings soar, the network seizes on their newfound populist prophet, and Howard becomes the biggest thing on TV. NETWORK depicts a media landscape where opinion trumps fact. Hilarious and hair-raising by turns, the iconic film by Paddy Chayefsky won four Academy Awards in 1976.
The creative team includes Tal Yarden (video design), An D’huys (costumes), Eric Sleichim (music and sound), and Jan Versweyveld (sets and lights). For over 30-years, Versweyveld has collaborated with Ivo van Hove on all of his theatre and opera productions around the world.
