Goethe classic, firmly tackled with music from self-built machines, amazing video projections and physical play. Goethe meets Tom Waits.
In MY FAUST, the darkness creeps deeper into life, the boundary between good and evil becomes wafer-thin. A story about lost innocence, carnal hunger and unstoppable desire. “Faust knew what he wanted. The devil could hustle everything, but he also had his trade. Give a little, take a little. You get what you want in exchange for your bones, as soon as you’re done. ”
