Dr. Faust - between Good and Evil. Enter the world of a timeless story of Dr. Faust coming to life

In the "Faust" show Black Light Theatre of Prague sensitively combines Johann Wolfgang Goethe's classic work with black light theatre principles, dynamic choreography, projections and original sound-track. Black light theatre performances are non-verbal spectacles of dance, pantomime and shadow theatre, suitable for all ages.

Doctor Faust longs for absolute knowledge, beauty and power. He seeks fulfilment of his desire in magic and makes an agreement with the Devil, Mephistopheles. The Devil will serve Faust for 24 years and through his power, Faust will gain all earthly knowledge, youth, beauty and power. However, Faust soon realises that even a contract with the Devil does not bring the expected fulfilment of his desires, and the answers to basic questions of existence still elude him. The contract with the Devil finally expires, and Faust is consigned to Hell. Can true love save him?

Faust in Prague:
The legendary Faust character is based on a real historical figure, Dr. Johannes Faust (1480-1540), a medieval German alchemist allegedly bonding with the Devil. According to the legend the so-called "Faust House" on Charles Square in Prague was one of the residences of famous Dr. Faust, and it is from the tower of this building that the Devil was supposed to have carried Faust off to Hell. It is said that on the plastered walls of the tower inexplicable stains can be seen until today.
