Infaust is loosely based on Goethe’s dramatic poem, offering the audience a journey through the darkest alleys of the human soul. The performance deals with Faust, old and tired, in the final moments of his life, looking back on his past: his love affairs, his adventures, Wagner and Margaret. This adaptation of Faust, by Walter Mattieni and Ina Broeckx brings to life the story’s villain as a duel being – male and female. INFAUST is a complex work where life is a struggle, passion and yearning.
