“A Spellbinding and superb performance” – Theatre Review
“The transitions are masterful” – The Hook
Vincent van Gogh is one of the world’s most recognisable and beloved painters. Leonard Nimoy’s celebrated play Vincent is based on hundreds of letters exchanged between the illustrious painter and his brother Theo. Told through the eyes of Theo, this incredible one-man show reveals the artist as few knew him.
Hawke’s Bay actor Daniel Betty takes us on a fascinating journey and invites us to ponder the meaning behind van Gogh’s work. Under the direction of Lisa-Jane Easter, we explore the relationship between insanity and creative genius, and the demands that society makes on an artist.
Vincent van Gogh lives on as a symbol of inspiration, courage, passion, and the lust for life that art kindles in all of us.
