'Woyzeck' was well received by publications including The Stage and in 2015 featured in the UK Design for Performance 2011-15 exhibition at The V&A Museum: "work that defines the edges of this global art form"
Susan Elkin, The Stage: "This powerful, atmospheric reworking of Buchner’s 200 year old play as a three-hander is set in the aftermath of World War One with graphic flashbacks and a crisply accurate soundtrack.. a highly refined form of jerky, balletic, fast, evocative physical theatre with a strong debt to Brecht and some slickly puppeted underpinning.. Nicely timed for the 2014 centenary of the outbreak of the First World War, this Woyzeck is a fine piece of rapid fire theatre which shocks as much as it entertains."
I had the honour of associate producing, co-adapting, co-directing, understudying & later performing in the 2013-14 UK theatre tour of Georg Büchner's 1837 'Woyzeck' in association with South Hill Park & Redbridge Drama Centre. Our physical theatre adaptation with a cast of 3, set in the aftermath of WW1, had a strong focus on PTSD and used projections of authentic sketches of the trenches drawn by a WW1 soldier. The devising process consisted of a week's R&D at South Hill Park followed by 3 weeks rehearsal. The touring show was later adapted into an immersive promenade production at Redbridge Drama Centre, October 18th-24th 2014.
