Silviu Purcarete's Faust
This article is from 2009.
Faust Silviu Purcarete’s wild adaptation of Goethe’s epic theatre poem is a macabre nightmare vision of one-man’s quest for the essence of life. In a part-promenade production featuring a cast of over 100 performers and blending pantomime and industrial music the audience is exposed to sensational scenes of torture, murder and orgies.
