Battle is this company's MO. Artistic director Kyle Vincent Terry has studied martial arts and stage combat as well as ballet, and the troupe's work is loaded with conflict and confrontation. No surprise, then, that Terry's Faust plays out as a war, pitting God against Satan with the poor sinner who signed on the dotted line caught in the middle. The gods and angels deliver their thunderbolts figuratively, through hip-hop and breakdancing, while the devil's disciples wear toe shoes: ballet's chilly control proves an apt expression of the cold calculation of evil.
