Second-year Creative Arts Performance students in ‘Woyczek’.

Rehearsals for the second-year production of Woyczek are well underway at the University of Wollongong.

Directed by Chris Ryan, Woyczek is a German play written by Georg Bücher in 1836.  One of the most influential German plays, Woyczek deals with poverty, infidelity, military oppression and medical experimentation.

According to performance student, Emma Hoole, who plays the doctor in the play, Woyczek is a tragedy.

Woyczek is about the downfall of the main character who is in the army and his wife is unfaithful to him and my character makes him only eat peas for three months and all these people really mess with him,” Emma says.

Chris Ryan has taken a post-modern approach, presenting Woyczek as a series of images and episodes.

The Faculty of Creative Arts performance of Woyczek opens Wednesday 16th May and will run until Saturday 19th May at the FCA Performance Space, University of Wollongong.
