Summary/Abstract: Thomas Irmer reviewsFrank Castorf’s Faust (Volksbühne in Berlin, premiere: 3.03.2017). The author points out the non-canonical interpretation of Goethe’s drama, how Castorf plays with the chronology of various parts and scenes. He also notes the intertextuality of the performance, by which Castorf introduces various levels of meaning, sharpening the political messages, chiefly when it comes to the French colonial invasion of Algeria and the political maneuvers of Berlin’s bureaucrats to change the director at the Volksbühne.
