Cirque du Sound, Episode 1

Episode 1: Sympathy for the Devil, with Screenwriter John August.

Screenwriter and director John August (Charlie & The Chocolate Factory, The Nightmare Before Christmas) is known for creating wildly imaginative storylines where darkness and light get turned upside-down. He joins Michel Laprise for a chat about character evolution, story-worlds, and stories that challenge our understanding of darkness.

Together they discuss Alegría, a Cirque du Soleil show exploring themes of light vs. darkness, the thirst for change, and "sympathy for the devil".
