BLM/Seifert/Flink CREATE: The Woyzeck Project*
Loosely based on George Büchner's 19th-century play, Woyzeck, this multi-tiered event takes place throughout the Southern Theater, which will be transformed into Büchner's tangled psyche. Theater and dance artists Luverne Seifert, Michael Sommers, and Carl Flink set a cast of 35 dancers and actors loose in a surreal landscape. The audience wanders through, catching fragments of action and bizarre installations depicting scenes that are riffs on Büchner's tale of a soldier's fight to maintain his sanity. In last year's version, which took place in a deserted U of M building, performers appeared in prison barracks, trussed up on walls and ensconced behind tiny peepholes. The performance was disturbing, witty, and exhilarating. This year's incarnation should be a doozy. (Photo by Annie Katsura Rollins)
