woyzeck campaign sept 2005
music by nick cave and warren ellis
FL@33 was commissioned by the young
vic theatre to create the visual and
print campaign for georg büchner's woyzeck. The final image is
a composition of two photgraphs taken by fred
frei in france and FL@33. The play,
directed by gísli örn gardarsson, will be performed in
october 2005 by vesturport theatre at bite:05,
barbican, london, as part of the young
genius season. The woyzeck visual was
also used for the book cover of the script publication, the programme,
the barbican and bite:05 brochures, flyers, online promotion, posters
panic postcards with attached badge.
The visual will also be used in forthcoming iceland campaign. The
project turned out to be even more exciting for us than anticipated
when some or favs namely nick
cave and warren ellis (of the bad seeds)
signed up to produce exclusive music for this performance/theatre
play. Vesturport's Woyzeck is we believe an absolut must-see. Please
find excerpts from the official press releases with booking details
and project descriptions below.
official press release
By Georg Büchner
"Achingly sexy. Surprisingly moving."
Daily Telegraph (on VESTURPORT'S Romeo and Juliet)
"Dizzyingly and beautifully moving."
Metro (on VESTURPORT'S Romeo and Juliet)
Music by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis
12-15, 17-22 October 2005, 7.45PM
Nick Cave and Warren Ellis have created the original music and lyrics
for this extraordinary version of Büchner's Woyzeck.
A hostage to fortune, class and his sadistic superiors, Woyzeck's
fate is played out in a series of nightmarish encounters. He stumbles
through a world of macabre carnival, sexual betrayal and cruel oppression,
pursued by the demons of his own paranoid fantasies. Pushed beyond
breaking point, Woyzeck's last love-crazed act tragically destroys
the only thing he truly cares for.
Iceland's Vesturport use hair-raising, high spectacle, circus skills
to electrifying effect. Vesturport's production of Romeo and Juliet
was a huge hit at London's Young Vic in 2003, transferring to the
West End in 2004.
