Under William Kentridgešs biting direction, this brilliant piece of total theater examines the South African apartheid regime through the findings of the Truth Commission. Combining animation, live actors, puppetry, and documentary footage, Kentridge and Handspring have created an astonishing piece of total theater, hailed as "an undisputed triumph." Handspringšs Woyzeck on the Highveld was a hit of the 1994 International Festival.
