By Brian Lipson and Mark Wilson
A presentation of a friendship between two people who have “lost their souls” – that is to say they’re living their lives in search of meaning.
The pair ponder the implication of the subversive Christopher Marlowe's 16th century play Doctor Faustus, about a man who makes a pact with the devil. An intimate and alarming experience for those interested in matters of the soul.
A sneak peek into the work was live-streamed on Saturday 25 July at 2pm.
A recording of this Showing is available to stream on demand via the Take Over! playlist on Youtube. Available for a strictly limited time, until Thursday 22 October.
