Song from Far Away was written especially for Eelco Smits by English playwright Simon Stephens. The monologue, directed by Ivo van Hove, premiered at the Mostra International de Teatro in São Paulo, followed by a series of sold-out performances in Amsterdam, London and at the Galway International Arts Festival in Ireland. Scenographer Jan Versweyveld won the British Knight of Illumination Award for his lighting design.
This season Song from Far Away returns to the Stadsschouwburg Amsterdam, performed in Dutch with English surtitles on 23 and 30 November 2017.
