We invite you on October 20th , 2017 at 19.00 to MCK SOKÓŁ for a premiere of a play by NOMINA ROSAE Thatre entitled “Faustus and Margaret”, specially prepared for the 12th LABYRINTH OF HISTORY.
“Faustus and Margaret” is a new approach to the legend of Faustus. A story reaching to 16th century about the doctor of sciences who, chasing youth, might and power sells his soul to the devil. The faustian myth was told in many different ways in literature i.a. by Christophera Marlowe and Johann Goethe, but also in many operatic, theatric and cinematic works In various versions the story of life of Faustus, his pact with the devil and disavowal of God become a pretext for reflection upon aspects of human life, religion, civilization, culture, morality. In the story of Faustus there also appears the character of Margaret (Gretchen) – a young girl whom Faustus seduces and brings to damnation.
What’s happening to Faustus at the end of 21st century? Where is he and where is he going? Will he be able to reach his goal? What does he think about the problems he thought so important from the perspective of his longevous life How does his deal with Mefistofeles look like after 500 years and did he settle an account of the harm he caused Margaret?
