One of the most important dramas in the German language, Georg Büchner's fragile fragment is based on the case of the soldier J. Ch. Woyzeck, who stabbed his lover to death in 1824. Büchner explores the question of our dependence on social conditions, while also addressing the role of individual freedom and of fatalistic determination in our lives. Rarely has the hopelessness of Büchner's Woyzeck been so movingly portrayed as it is in this production. Ulrich Rasche's sets conjure up a series of breathtaking images, each of them reflecting the situation onstage. This production opens up a direct route to the narrative that is hard to resist. "Büchner's" Woyzeck "has never been seen like this. Gutted and yet filled. Abstract and at the same time of concentrated force. " (Neue Zürcher Zeitung)
