THALIA THEATER HAMBURG
GERMANY
AUSTRALIAN EXCLUSIVE
“‘Woyzeck’ deals with madness and obsession, with children and murder – all things that move us...”
Tom Waits

Created by Tom Waits, Kathleen Brennan and Robert Wilson
Songs and lyrics by Tom Waits and Kathleen Brennan
Directed by Jette Steckel

God’s away on business
.

Woyzeck loves Marie, but what can he offer her? A simple soldier on the fringes of society, he sacrifices his body and sanity to an arrogant doctor’s medical experiments. When a drum major catches Marie’s eye, it all becomes too much for Woyzeck.

American musician Tom Waits, working with Kathleen Brennan and acclaimed theatre director Robert Wilson, has reinvented Georg Büchner’s raw and unforgiving Woyzeck as a 21st century musicalTwo worlds are created: one of the poor German underclass speaking gutsy pre-Brechtian German; another of introspection through Waits’ English songs, giving new dimension to the characters. The illustrious Thalia Theater Hamburg is magnetic in this refined and refreshingly transparent adaptation by the young director Jette Steckel.

Woyzeck is something between a fever dream and social drama, a lurid performance dealing with madness, obsession and murder.
