Faust performance Dan Lowenstein

Faust – Southpaw Dance Company from Southpaw Company on Vimeo.

Enjoyed Faust at one of our tour dates this year? Re-live the experience through our promo video for this original production here.

Filmed and edited by James Coyle, the video gives an insight as to some of the spectacular moments in Faust that have wowed audiences across Europe.

In this re-imagining of Goethe’s “Faust”, drinking, gambling, womanising, and general debauchery make the Speakeasy a perfect place for a man to lose his soul, as we see when Faust is manipulated, to both comic and tragic effect, into a deal with the devil where his very soul hangs in the balance.

Told through the intense physical and narrative dance style that Southpaw Dance company have become renowned for, ‘Faust’ features a unique fusion of world-class breaking combined with Lindy Hop, Charleston, and swinging big band music of the roaring 20’s that taps into the spirit of gangsters, bootleggers, gamblers, flappers, and hep cats of the time.

Flaming cocktails, burning boxing rings, and a literally explosive set combine with world class dance skills and authentic 20s styling to provide an experience not to be missed.
