Woyzeck

THE WOYZECK

Thu 07 Feb - Fri 08 Feb

 

Woyzeck, an impoverished underdog, only wants to live life peacefully with his girlfriend and child. He will soon discover that society has other plans for him…

Animal Work and Physical Theatre here create a magically dystopian universe. Society’s exploitation of its weaker members is robustly critiqued in this fiery production, with an original score to complement the eclectic artistry on show.

Based on the true story of a man who murdered his wife for her infidelity, Georg Büchner’s unfinished and fragmentary masterpiece is reworked as THE WOYZECK. The original’s many characters are consolidated into four archetypes – The Lover, The Oppressor, The Commoner and The Woyzeck. Acting Like Mad and Theatrical Niche Ltd bring this fantastical re-imagining of Büchner’s landmark play “Woyzeck” to regional venues in early 2013, marking its bicentenary year.
