Woyzeck on the Highveld is an amazing adaptation of writer George Buchner’s famed play. Interestingly it’s through the puppets that this story is told, with an amazing effect.
This fabulous production owes its credit to the combined efforts of the Handspring Puppet Company and Director William Kentridge.
It’s a story with strong emotions attached to it. In this re-told version, the tale follows the character Woyzek in 1956 Johannesburg, working as a migrant worker where murder, jealousy and the personal struggle occur in a society that takes little notice.
It certainly is a privilege to watch the workmanship of these dedicated puppeteers as they take you down a deep emotional road.
