Inspired by Goethe
Vesturport Theatre and Reykjavík City Theatre
Directed by Gisli Örn Gardarsson

“…amongst the world’s most dazzling troupes.” —The Guardian (UK)

Iceland’s Vesturport Theatre returns to BAM with a spectacle of slapstick, horror, and aerial circus daredevilry for an inventive reimagining of Goethe’s Faust. Music by longtime collaborators Nick Cave and Warren Ellis is harnessed to Vesturport’s trademark
acrobatics—including a high-flying act performed above a vast trampoline net stretched over the audience. Having succumbed to the temptation offered by the demon Mephisto, the once-great actor Johann, retired and at the height of despair, finally pursues the happiness that has long eluded him by embarking on the performance of a lifetime.
