DAS FAUST-EXPERIMENT, written by Tonio Kleinknecht and Marko Timlin, is a multimedia play for a humane technological society.

"Is educated man able to balance the contradictions of his soul and his existence and to establish a fruitful connection between rationality and feeling, reason and desire? This is the core question of Goethe's Faust 1 and 2. How do we succeed in this nowadays when more and more decisions are taken away from us by the machines? And where can we still find possibilities of being in a world of having and omnipresent consumerism?"

This play combines interactive video projections, contemporary dance, acting, music and 2 interactive robots. It was directed by Marko Timlin and premiered at the City Theater Aalen in October 2017.
