Woyzeck

TOURING SCHOOLS AND THEATRES Sept 2013 – Mar 2014
Promenade - Redbridge Drama Centre
Directed by Kelly Taylor-Smith
Co- Director Stuart Walker

A brand new adaptation based on the play by Georg Buchner

“Innocence there is a mark on you!” 

Set amidst the backdrop of WW1, Woyzeck is a startling depiction of the lowly soldier plagued by visions of the apocalypse and plunged into homicidal lunacy by the world around him.
Presented as a visual jigsaw, exploding from one scene to the next, using intense physicality, projections, a haunting soundtrack and beautiful imagery.
The agonizing effects of war trauma and the utter devastation of the downtrodden man still resonate 200 years after the play was first written. As we approach the centenary of WW1, this production takes the audience into a world that is disturbingly atmospheric, darkly comic and heartbreakingly poignant.

The production will be heavily influenced by the styles of Berkoff and Artaud.

‘Chillingly combines hilarity with horror…this production has a dream-like quality, powerfully evoked by immaculately slick, highly imaginative physical theatre’
(The Stage on Metamorphosis)

Scene Productions tour with a technician who will need to access the performance space a minimum of 3 hours before the show in order to focus the lights.
