PUBLIC DOMAIN #2: ANDREW SCOVILLE DIRECTS THE TRAGICAL COMEDY OF DR. FAUSTUS BY CHRISTOPHER MARLOWE

Genre: Drama
Christopher Marlowe, Andrew Scoville

"Ugly Hell, gape not! Come not Lucifer! I'll burn my books!-O Mephistophilis!" So ends what is regarded as the first ever dramatization of the Faust legend and possibly the most notorious tale about the appeal of sin. True, Faustus meets a dismembered end, but for 24 years he was the most powerful magician on Earth. Sure, according to Marlowe, the Doctor regrets his fateful choice, but this is Public Domain! So, was the deal worth it? What's more important: your soul or your fun?

Andrew Scoville is a Brooklyn based theater director, installation artist and video designer. For the past couple of years he has been fostering his relationship with technology in his theatrical work. Artistically he has relied heavily on movement, music and media, but still finds fascination in the complexities of human language. He strongly believes that theater is ultimate collaborative art and the most effective way to engage with artists of every medium at the same time. That is why he does it.
