Week Two: Faust x2 Rehearsal Diary
27 February 2017
As opening night approaches, Jacques Miche looks back on the rehearsal process so far.
When reflecting on our second week of rehearsals, I realise how quickly the time has gone! Nevertheless, it feels as though we have used our short span of time effectively. This week we’ve been delving further into the text and really exploring our space. A trip off-site to a nearby studio has also been an interesting addition to our schedule (you’ll have to come to see the show to see the final results).
The more time I spend here at The Watermill, the more I enjoy it. There is definitely a sense of community here which is lovely to come and be a part of. As I look forward to the rest of our rehearsal process I am excited to see this piece come together and then finally give it an audience… bring on week three!
Jacques Miche is playing Mephisto in Faust x2. Previously, Jacques played Jason in Saving Jason at the Park Theatre, Knuckles in Bugsy Malone at the Lyric Hammersmith and The Artful Dodger in Oliver! (West End).
Faust x2 is a gripping story of lust, sacrifice and regret. Featuring innovative projection and a sparky original musical score, this contemporary retelling of the legend of Faust opens at The Watermill on Thursday 2 March and runs until Saturday 25 March.
