Margarete is our contemporary re-imagining of the Faust legend as told from the perspective of Goethe’s tragic heroine, whose life is slowly destroyed after she is seduced, impregnated and abandoned by Faust and the devil Mephistopheles.
Using Goethe’s work as a source we aim to create a work that tells the story of a contemporary Margarete. A Margarete unburdened by the 19th century symbolism. A Margarete, unlike Goethe’s original heroine, who could possibly choose life. A Margarete who is like us all.
