‘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
The Canada Water Culture Space is proud to showcase an alternative Halloween event – Woyzeck by Scene Productions. This is a harrowing and psychologically intense adaptation of the renowned unfinished play by Georg Buchner.
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, 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 is heavily influenced by the styles of Berkoff and Artaud. Scene Productions specialize in theatre which combines expressionism and naturalism. They have received acclaim for their previous works of The Other Side, Vampirates and Metamorphosis.
