One of the most important dramas in the German language, Georg B├╝chner's fragile fragment is based on the case of the soldier J. Ch. Woyzeck, who stabbed his lover to death in 1824. B├╝chner 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 B├╝chner'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. "B├╝chner's" Woyzeck "has never been seen like this. Gutted and yet filled. Abstract and at the same time of concentrated force. " (Neue Z├╝rcher Zeitung)
