Dr Faustus

Greatness. Is there any price too high? Exquisite Puppetry, Physical Theatre and Circus Artistry throw petrol over the flames of Marlowe's hellish pride tale and the battle for one circus leader's soul. "Energetic and astute...Superb" - Kent Messenger on Theatrical Niche Ltd

In a world pulsing with vanity and expectation, what happens when the greatest loved icon runs out of clever ideas? Under the straining tent poles of the world's most famous circus, Dr. Faustus employs the one show tactic not yet undertaken to achieve glory - black magic.
Devilish neon puppets wander the stage in this visceral and physical re-imagining, whilst the fast-paced backbone of modern dialogue rockets the classic B text into full techni-colour for today's audience.

Acclaimed Director / Movement Director team Venetia Twigg and Sheri Sadd lead this visceral and physical production, exploring Grotowski's "Poor Theatre" in the creation of an electrifying circus of the body.

In this new exploration of Marlowe's classically Christian tale, Sin is for all creeds and Hell is wherever you allow it.

"Hugely imaginative, clever, witty, energetic... swings from serious to funny in a heartbeat" -Wimbledon SW19 on Theatrical Niche Ltd
