Georg Büchner was inspired to write Woyzeck by a real murder case, which provoked contradictory reactions. The author was captivated by the fate of a timid, sheepish weakling who piteously tried to understand the meaning of his existence. The more he encounters indifference and contempt around him, the more open are his passions. The reality mingles with visions in the play. After the untimely death of Georg Büchner (1837), Woyzeck remained in a fragmentary form. But the strong story provoking imagination became a big challenge for stage completion. The Pilsen drama company's project is linked with the most interesting and the most renowned directors of the young generation. The creators of author's drama from the SKUTR Theatre let themselves be inspired by the theme but they interpret it on stage with a prodigal theatricality. Their show combines dance, acrobatics, puppetry, projection, text and music.
Premiere on 17 October 2015 at the New Theatre.
