The Nerve Tank returns to The Performance Project with Project Woyzeck, a three-part performance piece using streamed video and original music to interrogate concepts of authority, personhood, and programmed behavior. Inspired by the plays Woyzeck by Georg Buchner and Kaspar by Peter Handke, the show spotlights the human desire to succeed even under the most impossible and contradictory circumstances. It also creates mirrored entry points for audiences to engage with questions of emotional truth and mediation, as our "project person" (Woyzeck) tests his autonomy against the demands of the established social order.
