La Croix

Adapté du roman publié en 1943 par l’Américaine Ayn Rand, il raconte la confrontation entre deux architectes amis, que leur conception de leur métier va vite opposer : Peter Keating, le consensuel sans imagination, qui obéit scrupuleusement aux desiderata de ses commanditaires ; et Howard Roark, idéaliste visionnaire, en recherche permanente de formes nouvelles, quitte à choquer ses clients. Le premier connaîtra la fortune et la gloire ; le second, la misère et l’opprobre.

Andrew Todd, The Guardian (London)

Olivier Py’s first outing as Avignon festival director has been hobbled by bad weather and strikes, in the context of a bitter national renegotiation of theatre workers’ contract status; it has also been dismissed as humdrum and wordy. He might be relieved, then, by the awesome, air-clearing thunderclap brought about by Ivo van Hove’s mammoth production of Ayn Rand’s The Fountainhead. Van Hove puts on stage the philosophical storm surrounding the collective and the individual. He provides a fresh and complex rereading of Ayn Rand’s novel, which has been in danger of becoming a one-line footnote to the neocon revolution.

….

Rand’s tub-thumping anticollectivism is nuanced in (rather long) cattle-auctioneer duelling speeches by Roark and the cartoon-baddy socialist Ellsworth Toohey.Van Hove succeeds in levitating all these contradictory ideals and themes, throwing moral responsibility back where it belongs: with the audience.

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.

50. THE FOUNTAINHEAD (1949)

Ayn Rand’s doorstopping tract on architecture and morality – with Gary Cooper as master builder and Patricia Neal as a whip-cracking heiress – is a masterpiece of modernist design, and its eccentricity feels entirely right.

…porque, mientras el montaje y las interpretaciones siguen a gran altura, el texto elegido (una adaptación de El manantial, la millonaria novela de Ayn Rand) me resulta una extraña opción por parte de su director, Ivo Van Hove, que ha llevado a la escena materiales mucho más sustanciosos, como…

«Una batalla de ideas y de pasiones. La lucha entre el idealismo y el oportunismo, entre el individualismo y la colectividad». Así resume el director belga Ivo van Hove The Fountainhead (La deu), la adaptación del best-seller de Ayn Rand El manantial con el que regresa hoy al Grec (en el Lliure de Montjuïc hasta el viernes) tras el aclamado Tragèdies romanes con el que triunfó el pasado verano.
