Au Festival d'Avignon, le belge Ivo van Hove adapte avec virtuosité le roman d’Ayn Rand, chantre de l’individualisme et de la libre entreprise, l’histoire d’un architecte idéaliste qui refuse toute compromission. En mettant les personnages à égalité, le metteur en scène contourne partiellement le propos politique d’une auteure récupérée par la frange la plus radicale de la droite américaine.
