UCI Drama Explores the Psychiatry of Dehumanization in Georg Büchner’s Woyzeck

UCI DRAMA EXPLORES THE PSYCHIATRY OF DEHUMANIZATION IN GEORG BÜCHNER’S WOYZECK

IRVINE, Calif. (February 12, 2016) – UC Irvine’s Claire Trevor School of the Arts Department of Drama presents George Büchner’s challenging and influential play Woyzeck. Famously unfinished when Büchner died in 1837, the narrative explores themes of working class struggle and dehumanization in the life of soldier Franz Woyzeck. Loosely based on the life of a Leipzig barber, who later became a soldier and was finally driven to madness and murder, Woyzeck is considered by many to be the first “modern” drama. It is by turn a naturalistic tragedy, a damning social critique of the abuses of power, and a discussion of free will versus social determinism.

Guest director Andrew Borba opens up to Daniel Gary Busby about WOYZECK

DRAMA CHAIR DANIEL GARY BUSBY SAT DOWN WITH GUEST DIRECTOR ANDREW BORBA TO DISCUSS UCI DRAMA'S UPCOMING PRODUCTION OF WOYZECK:

Daniel Gary Busby: I know this style of script is not in your usual milieu…are you excited about directing it?
