The Hidden Force is a tragedy of fate. It is a disconcerting portrait of a man who remains blind to his environment and becomes the victim of false assumptions and preconceptions. A performance that makes us painfully aware of the gaping abyss between the stories we tell about ourselves and who we really are.

Director Ivo van Hove condensed Couperus’s epic novel into a two-hour performance, consisting of deeply sensual, memorable and thought provoking scenes of confrontation between the two cultures.

Van Hove stakes on powerful scenic effects that create the exotic atmosphere (...) Musician Harry de Wit appears as a true magician in the tropical hurricane of feelings as he masterfully plays the Asian tom-toms, the bamboo sticks and the piano amidst all this water.
