In the festival circuit, there’s always that one show that’s not like the others. In the landscape of the 2016 Frigid Festival, that show is Supershock vs. Faust. Billed as a “movieconcert”, Supershock vs. Faust is the antithesis of theater. Appearing more like performance art, Supershock vs. Faust takes the silent film version “Faust” by Murnau while rock musician Supershock provides a live underscore. The juxtaposition between era and style ties into a thematic night of multi-disciplinary performance.
Be prepared. Supershock vs. Faust is not like any other show in the festival. The moral of the story is don’t trust the devil, no matter what. Even if he tempts you with a repetitious night of music.
