WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Georg Büchner's Woyzeck tells the harrowing tale of a society so callous, so morally bankrupt, that an inherently decent man is driven to commit murder. This production is a collaboration between director Robert Wilson and composer/lyricists Tom Waits and Kathleen Brennan, the creators of Alice (BAM, 1995), itself a follow-up to the Wilson-Waits-William S. Burroughs' classic, The Black Rider (BAM, 1993). The nightmarish fable (based on a true story) portrays a gentle soldier, Woyzeck, whose life slowly crumbles around him. Desperate for money to support his wife Marie and her young son, Woyzeck sells his body for scientific experimentation. Increasingly degraded by and isolated from those around him, Woyzeck descends into madness.
