WoyzeckTheater Young FFT Theatre & Performance
This Woyzeck transference focuses on the everyday lives and environment of young people, thereby asking the questions that were already inherent in Büchner’s work: What turns men into perpetrators? What are the relationship ideas we live by? Is alanguage other than that of violence possible?
A young team around director Katharina Stoll, of Berlin theatre collective Glossy Pain, reinvents the classic with a perspective on the female characters – in strong pictures, musically, playfully.
