YUNG FAUST

BASED ON JOHANN WOLFGANG VON GOETHE

Director: Leonie Böhm

play

“To find out what holds the world together at its core,” is Faust’s mission as he sets out on a quest of intoxication, rejuvenation, sex and wizardry. “I want to gain more in this hour than in a year’s monotony.” Faust abandons all reason (or at least tries), relinquishes control and hopes to understand the world at last by living in the fast lane. Director Leonie Böhm says: “I am Faust” and, together with the actors Annette Paulmann, Julia Riedler and Benjamin Radjaipour, she excavates real emotions in the old Faust text. Just as the cloud rappers nowadays add a “young” to their artistic names, indicating not only their literal youth, but also their fresh way of relating to the world and relationships within it, “Yung Faust” wants to reclaim the vulnerable immediacy of the much-too-often recited sentences of the powerful old wise man (Goethe). Real quotes, real encounters: “My breasts are starting to burn!”


There will be a public rehersal on January 19, 2019 starting 7 pm.
