By Southpaw Dance

In this re-imagining of Goethe’s “Faust”, drinking, gambling 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.

All effects were developed alongside the cast and choreography, so the show is a perfect balance between the technical and performance skills. 

Faust has become an internationally acclaimed show touring Europe throughout 2014 and 2015.

“…bringing the house down to the sound of jazz standards. The details of each movement – the tiny hand gestures in their flapper routine, the little shake of the head after a particularly vigorous bit of bboying – gave dramatic richness to a breath-taking display.”
— Sarah Crompton, Daily Telegraph
