Fresh from the Emerald Isle comes this new treat from Roger Gregg, a scene from a new production of Faustus… Roger has been talking about his desire about doing Faustus since I visited back in 2008, and it’s thrilling to see it becoming a reality.
Here is a scene from the new show which will run in Dublin from November 18 to the 26th in Smock Alley Theatre:
I asked Roger whether there will be an audio adaptation of this work, similar to what he did with The Stuff of Myth. Roger says:
Yes … In fact one of the central tenets of the stage show is have an on-going live sound score being performed on stage by all the demons. Using no pre-recorded material, very little amplification and employing many ‘OTR’ type sound effects gadgets in with the musical instruments.
There are many imagistic scenes in which very little is said and the story is conveyed through the movement and actions of the actors and the sound-scape and music.
So the audio version will be a ‘Concept Album’ with alot of musical passages.
This new show is so exciting that I’m tempted to cash in some frequent flyer miles to see the show myself. Share new Crazy Dog’age with your friends!
