While Goethe’s massive original places Faust at the center of the philosophical, social, and political questions of his era—questions still evocative in the 21st century—it also figures “women” into the gendered field of Enlightenment rationality, the field of (white, European, propertied) humanist “Man.” This adaptation inquires into the gender dynamics of Goethe’s work, imagining a counter voice to his “eternal feminine,” a voice freeing itself from a logic of extrinsic desire. Faust 2.0 is a coproduction with the experimental theatre company Mabou Mines.
