Spoken Word Theater

faust in the box (Bridge Markland)

J.W. Goethe's Faust 1 for the pop music generation

Scientist Dr. Faust is searching for ultimate knowledge and fun. Mephisto appears - who can fulfill any desire, but Faust has to sell him his soul. In this fast paced One-Woman+Puppets-LipSync Show Bridge Markland quick changes between Faust, Mephisto and Gretchen. Additional characters are performed with hand puppets. J.W. Goethe’s famous theatrical texts are collaged with quotes from well known pop songs. Roy Orbison sings “Pretty Woman” when Faust first sees Gretchen. Elvis coaches the inexperienced girl with “Falling In Love”. To which Madonna sings: “Like a Virgin”. This love story doesn’t have a happy end in this version either, but is a lot of fun for the viewers. Bridge conjures a fresh new Faust out of her box and gives a completely new look at some famous pop songs aswell.
