Wikileaks. The NSA. Prism. Email metadata. Press regulation. “Gagging” laws. The control of information and the complex morality of revealing secrets have never been more urgent topics.
Faust [Redacted] was a new adaptation of Marlowe’s profound analysis of a man betrayed by the lure of hidden knowledge, and the powers that manipulate him and it, created as part of Little Angel’s FIRSTS season.
Skillful puppetry and bold staging opened up Marlowe’s brash combination of high tragedy and broad comedy, and we pushed further our digital languages using creative video design to bring virtual worlds and the flow of information to life on stage.
An inventive and provocative combination of classic text and contemporary puppetry.
