Iceland’s trailblazing Vesturport Theatre Company burst onto the Young Vic stage with a wildly inventive new production. This thrilling, circus inspired UK premiere is co-written and directed by Gísli Örn Garðarsson (Romeo and Juliet, Young Vic; Woyzeck, Young Vic/Barbican; Metamorphosis, Lyric Hammersmith) with music by renowned musicians Nick Cave and Warren Ellis.
The universal tale of a man selling his soul to the devil has never been imagined quite like this before. Loud, fast, explosive, poetic and acrobatic, Vesturport’s Faust is hilarious and terrifying with a score ranging from devilish glam-rock to soulful ballads.
