This interpretation explores varieties of transformations of mythological symbols of recognition and contrasts to their primal archetypical descriptions. The performance is based on dramatical situation of Faustian pact with Luifer by signing the contract with his blood. Red cords are representation of Faustus' blood (direct association with Buttoh's theatre methods) and an image of his soul (connected with story of acient Fates/Morais). By the end of this performance Faustus is left as ‘tabula rasa’ in a pure white garment with tubes as scars, which are the reminders of the action that he has provided and consequences that he is yet to experince.
