Roaming Faustus: Adaptations and Transformations of the Faust Legend on Stage

View Fullscreen

This exhibit maps the performance history of the Faust Legend from Marlowe to the contemporary theater, paying particular attention to the early modern period. It was composed by students in a Fall 2017 course on Global Drama, and our aim was to better understand how circulation and border-crossing shaped the Faust Legend in particular, and performance of popular culture more generally.We use Neatline, an Omeka addon, to visualize this dynamic history of theatrical exchange.
