Winter 2011 Finland. Set in an old manor house on a secluded island , this promenade production of Woyzeck was a totally immersive piece which led the audience through the manor house and outside into the surrounding buildings. Upon arrival the audience were split into 3 groups and each follwed one of the main characters as the story unfolded, then they swapped around and saw the story from another characters point of view with one Woyzeck running from one strand to another.
"Ishwar Maharaj's adaption and direction of Woyzeck is more than just a theatrical performance, it is a journey into man hidden nooks.
Woyzeck is a well thought out, deeply analyzed and implemented in an original package, which offers viewers an unusual theatrical experience."
