“material this good and delivered this well”
… a stirring defense of poesy and of collaborative artistic productions, which join artist and audience and transform every monologue into a conversation – of the sort that material this good and delivered this well is bound to sustain, long after the lights come down and we walk back out into the night, no longer alone.
“one of the best things staged all season”
Poor soldier Woyzeck is oppressed by the system, abused by his masters, and betrayed by his love, Marie. A very early expressionist drama — written in 1836, WOYZECK is one of the most performed and influential plays in European theatre, and here gets the Gigante treatment, with movement and music – songs by Tom Waits and Kathleen Brennan performed by Paris Christine Zufferey & Gigante’s favorite one-man band musician Frank Pahl. Adapted and directed by James Butchart, performed by Mark Anderson, Leslie Fitzwater, Isabelle Kralj, Edwin Olvera and Michael Stebbins. Lighting and set design by Rick Graham. Reconstructed & choreographed by Isabelle Kralj.
