Alma is an original cabaret directed by former Belgian National Theatre director Fabrice Murgia together with composer Szymon Brzóska (Sadler’s Wells, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui,…) and the celebrated Belgian drag queen Peggy Lee Cooper. The script will be created by Tricity Vogue.
They will translate Faust’s pact with the devil into today in the universe of reality TV, playing with the codes of anglophone musical comedy.
A weaving together of music, cabaret, theatre and audiovisual elements, this piece takes us to the heart of a universe inspired by Faust that remains resolutely contemporary and surprising.
