?FAUST/How I Rose?
Nov 16, 18?20, 7:30pm
Sell your soul to the devil and you wind up with a few unique?complications. Just ask Faust, whose notorious pact takes on post-apocalyptic ramifications in ?FAUST/How I Rose.?
Playwright and multimedia artist John Jesurun applies a cinematic sensibility to a contemporary retelling of the centuries-old tale.
Adapted from a Spanish language production by Mexico?s Teatro de Arena, ?FAUST/How I Rose? tackles a host of cultural, social, and personal politics.
A high-flying diplomat, Jesurun?s Faust is lured by love and crushed by its inevitable pain, a vulnerability exploited by his oft-sympathetic, female Mephistopheles.
Mephisto, in the meantime, has her own problems; bedeviled by flawless 360-degree vision, she sees everything from every point of view, simultaneously. For all eternity. Hellish, no?
