Can the world exist without action? The most demanding, impossible to perform, complex – in two parts to boot...


  • 2020-2021


A play as the uppermost challenge placed before us by Goethe, as well as the dramatic tradition spanning centuries and including numerous adaptations of the myth about trespassing human limits. We raise the question of what makes Faust our contemporary, what temptations he would have to face today. And how much of the classical opus can actually be transferred to the stage at the beginning of the 21st century.

A brand-new treatment, a brand-new Faust.
