WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

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.
