Re: Faust

God (Sam Campbell Wilson) & Mephisopheles (Naomi Parszos)

Role: ARTISTIC DIRECTOR

This archetypal story turns a spotlight on current debate about human values and belief systems, and asks us to consider our position: Are we like Job? Humbly submitting all human values to the will of God? Or are we like Prometheus? Pinned to a rock, but refusing to betray humanity to the will of Zeus? Taking inspiration from a wide variety of adaptations of the Faust legend in music, art and literature, this is a post-theatrical re-imagining of an old German folk tale.
