Synopsis

Class struggle, jealousy, and oppression lie at the heart of Woyzeck, left unfinished at the playwright’s death in 1837. Fate deals Woyzeck one cruel blow after another—poverty, infidelity, demoralization—yet the young soldier determinedly moves on, until desperation pushes him to a final act of violence. As a portrait of a working-class tragic hero, Woyzeck combines German expressionism with radical ideas about 19th century society, resulting in an unforgettable evening at the theatre.

“Considered to be the first modern tragedy, Woyzeck still feels contemporary more than 150 years after its creation.”  - The New York Times

Johannes TurkThursday, February 6, at 5:30 p.m. Studio Theatre
2nd floor of the Lee Norvelle Theatre and Drama Center
"Tragedy and the Lowest Form of Life:
Georg Büchner's Woyzeck."
A Special Lecture by Johannes Türk

Professor Johannes Türk is in the Germanic Studies Department and teaches a wide range of topics from German cultural history from Charlemagne to the First World War to more specialized graduate courses on nostos and nostalgia in the German literary tradition, on literature and the life sciences, temporality in the novel, eighteenth century literature and thought as well as on literary theory.

His talk will focus on the importance of the play in the history of Modern drama as well as the role it plays in Büchner's work. He will discuss both formal as well as thematic aspects of the play, and provide information about the history of Germany as well as the biographic context.
