Created by Charles Campbell, February – March 2008

Using objects, projections of hand drawn images, music from Alban Berg’s opera, Wozzeck, home-made film, text and a two foot open box frame, Visits With Woyzeck explored Büchner’s famously fragmented work in the context of Toy Theater for Open Eye Figure Theatre’s 2008 Toy Theater After Dark festival.
Rather than trying to represent a whole world, the piece worked with only those aspects of the world that could enter the dimensions of the toy theater. The piece also played with the high contrast between the material realities of the small objects/body parts and the mediated images of the projections.
