Doctor Faustus Lights The Lights
Gertrude Stein’s take on the Faust legend, contemporized by director Lileana Blain-Cruz. A world consumed by technology, bathed in artificial light, and haunted by images of the past that we too often confuse with the future. The projections worked closely with the set, sound, lighting and actors to create an interactive environment of color, texture, and movement. They responded to the characters on stage and transformed the landscape of the playing space.
