…this is a fundamental play that announces the entry of the proletariat into the theatrical genre.

In his introduction to Woyzeck's version, Orlando Neves quotes Jean Duvignaud: “Woyzeck is without a doubt the first image of the proletarian put into theatre. The proletarian in the exact sense of the term, since it has nothing more than its own head where an irrepressible love for Mary dwells.” Woyzeck immerses modern theatre with  pain and extreme loneliness! This play is part of the cycle As Escolas Artísticas at TNSJ / July 2021 at Mosteiro de São Bento da Vitória.
