FAUSTO

On the coast of Oaxaca, rumours of times past are never far from the surface. Stories of telepathy and pacts with the Devil are embedded into the slavery and colonisation of the region. Characters from the legend of Faust mix with the inhabitants as they attempt to colonise and control nature with an apparently endless building project. Through literature, legends and local intrigues, the curtain between reality and fiction—visible and invisible—is raised.
