New Directors' Movement -

Why does a man fall? Doctor Faustus sells his soul to the devil, wagering twenty-four years of his life in exchange for immortality and power. With the help of Mephistopheles the devil, Faustus is able to do whatever he wills, to foresee what others have no clue, and to perform what others cannot imagine, but unable to find peace. Though he tries to break away, there is no turning back from his eternal damnation. In this classic written by the renowned playwright, Christopher Marlowe, Faustus strives to surpass others but when confronted with the unknown, where can he find the final destination of his heart? This group of young artists examine the fixations and frenzies of Faustus, incorporating drama, music and dance, inviting the spectators to a journey of lusts and temptations of Faustus.
