The Chocolate Factory and 7 Deadly Sins
Our friends over at The Chocolate Factory are opening their production of Dr. Faustus and the Seven Deadly Sins tonight out in L.I.C.
Dr. Faustus and the Seven Deadly Sins is a site-specific adaptation of Christopher Marlowes epic saga of a man who trades his soul to the devil in exchange for ultimate conjuring power. Audiences follow a movement inspired production from room to room, exploring all 5,000 square feet of the Chocolate Factory. The Seven Deadly Sins usher the audience through Dr. Faustus’s chaotic journey, visiting earth, heaven, and hell. Dr. Faustus and the Seven Deadly Sins utilizes ensemble generated site-specific choreography, mask, and bits of the original text to retell Marlowes Masterpiece.
Last year Chocolate Factory presented the very intriguing Audit, so go check out their newest project.
Saturday will be Pay-What-You-Can in honor of the complete and total lack of 7 Train service to Queens. Click through for more info…
