The Rock Opera, WildcardxFaust is a true collaboration between D. Faust and Jay Very. The integration of their narratives creates a 2-fold path of heroes sharing the same journey:
Written and envisioned by Fabienne Delacroix, FAUST is an adaptation of F.W. Murnau’s film of Goethe’s “Faust”. Inspired by striptease as a form of psychological revelation, the concept of the performer as a demon with a double life, and the process of artistic evolution, it is a Jekyll and Hyde-esque church of brimstone, nudity, vulnerability,
Wild Card the Rock Opera features a self-actualized, transmasculine sex worker in a kinky, queer, uplifting comedy that ends on a refreshingly positive note. The main character survives isolation through making connections with others and focuses on our similarities rather than our differences.
Apaulo Hart shines on stage showcasing a range of talents from “aerial theatre”, which combines clowning and burlesque with aerial rope to a one-man band of accordion and drumming.
As a leather craftsman, Apaulo creates custom-made, fetish wear from only the highest quality of leather. Trained in the production department at Mr.S Leather in San Francisco, he specializes in designs that transform humans into animals. Apaulo values creating looks that are comfortable, functional and versatile. Apaulo is chief illustrator, costume and set designer for WildcardxFaust
