From the masterpiece of the German poet Johann Wolfgang Goethe, written in 1808 where he tells the pact between Faust and Mephistopheles and their journey to discover the pleasures and beauties of the world.

 

JE SUIS FAUST is a modern and fresh reinterpretation, where everyone is in the middle of the timeless struggle between good and evil.

A production for the youth department of the Gärtnerplatztheater.

With "Je suis Faust" young people wrote an innovative theatrical piece.

 

The focus of the story is not only Faust, but also the young Gretchen. What happened to her and how do you translate her tragedy into today's language?

One of the most important questions was:

What does the story of the well-known Dr. Faust still tell us today and who would not want to give up his soul for an eternal life?

Angels and devils, mephistophelic poodles and evil witches lead us to a variety of places: a psychiatry, a maximum security prison and a wild hell of dreams.
