Michelangelo Antonioni / IT, FR, 1959 / 134 min.
During a cruise along the Italian coast, a young woman disappears from the ship. Her fiancée and her best friend start searching for her – but end up feeling more and more for one another. L’avventura is the first part of Antonioni's ‘love trilogy’, all three starring Monica Vitti in the lead role. This film was the inspiration for Ivo van Hove’s play Antonioni Project: see the exhibition All About Theatre About Film.

Film and theatre influence each other continuously. To celebrate that relationship between the two worlds, Eye has invited stage director Ivo van Hove and scenographer Jan Versweyveld to compile an exhibition.
