Woyzeck and Mary are inside an aquarium or escaping into outer space? Anyway, this will require protective helmets. Who could free us from that narcissistic corridor of mirrors? Who could cut the tubes in which we are captives? Woyzeck, of Zholdak, exposes humanity as a cinema glass box display and then it looks with a totally theatrical and dreamlike perspective to the condition of being – caught between men and women, rich and poor, slave and master, moral and conduct, animals and gods: a surreal encyclopedia, anarchist and wickedly fun of life and art, from which no one can escape. Of course, there is also a coyote.
