Magical, wondrous and darkly poetic in equal parts, the first landmark collaboration between celebrated artist William Kentridge and internationally renowned Handspring Puppet Company, Woyzeck on the Highveld transposes Büchner’s timeless tale to 1950s South Africa.

A migrant worker struggles to survive in a callous, inhospitable, urban landscape, vividly portrayed in this multi-media work featuring hand-carved puppets, animated film and haunting music.
