Cristian Stanca (The Wolf), Faust the dog - trainer Silviu Stan
“Faust” is more than a theatre performance. Violent, emotional and visceral, “Faust” invites the audience to a strong individual experience about pain, death and love. A milestone in the history of the Romanian theatre, “Faust” directed by Silviu Purcărete, distinguishes itself through the artistic vision and the complexity of the roles presented in the baroque construction of the set design, mastered to the smallest, with vivid details: impressive set and light design, elegant and burlesque costumes, entertaining and overwhelming music with appropriate sound effects that add to that eccentric environment, video projections ingeniously framed in the architecture of the whole stage approach, that is monumentally created with the help of over 120 actors, performed in an abandoned industrial hall.
Discover an extrasensory experience placed between Earth and Hell, a scenery amplified by video projections, fireworks, live original rock music, tens of actors and dancers and an original soundtrack created by Vasile Şirli, musical director of Disneyland Paris. The script of this performance catches the essential of Goethe’s text: the pact with the devil, Faust’s sick fascination for Margaret, the Walpurgis Night and Faust’s rise to Heaven.
Performance not recommended to audiences under the age of 16.
Performance presented in Romanian, with translation into English.
