developed for Southpaw Dance Company
In this re-imagining of Goethe’s “Faust”, drinking, gambling, womanising, and general debauchery make the speakeasy the 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 for which Southpaw Dance Company has become renowned, 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.
