Dr. Faustus theater-concert | EXT@TESZT

The crisis of inspiration of the creator, the tragic vocation of failure, the polarity and fragility of the artist, the fatal compromise and the inner self subject to the inner experience of time, the relationship between nothingness and the eternal, the disjunction of the schizophrenic genius are the themes that make up the architecture of this atypical contemporary theater music concert, inspired by the life story of the composer Adrian Leverkühn, recalled by his intimate friend Serenus Zeitblom. "We live in a time when the rules of the <<new world>> and the need for art, theater, music have an ambiguous, fluid relationship": Kocsárdi Levente composed the music, directed and performs this show, based on Thomas Mann's masterpiece, a theater-concert that approaches the Mephistophelian pact from a new perspective, a contemporary Faust, with the dissonances and acutes of the world under the terrifying sign of the unpredictable.

Dr. Faustus theatre-concert is an evolutionary musical project, conceived in the Arte Factum Theatrical/Musical Introspection Laboratory.
