The premiere of my adaptation of Goethe's Faust I & II (from German to English, from 16 hours to two) took place in the Media Room at the University of Alberta, Oct 24-26, 2003. The production was sponsored in part by the German Consulate and was very well received by both audience and scholars. The Sunday performance was followed by an interdepartmental colloque on Faust in contemporary culture. The show was designed by Amanda Gougeon (lights), Lisa Hancharek (costumes), and Annie Parkinson (set), with original music composed by Shane Krepakevich.
