Derived from versions of the Faust myth by Christopher Marlowe and Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Ich Bin Faust is set in the time of the Large Hadron Collider. It focuses on a group of students, of diverse backgrounds and obsessions, who were initially together to produce a production of Marlowe's Doctor Faustus. Over the next four years, their real lives intertwine with the issues raised in the play. One suggests God is dead. Another believes the devil is alive and well and just waiting for the advent of the big bang! The limits of belief, knowledge and faith are explored in the ensuring life and death struggle.
