The Sun Shining On Her Hands 
A retelling of Georg Büchner's 'Woyzeck' through the eyes of Marie.

Focusing on exploring the character of Marie from Georg Büchner's expressionist play 'Woyzeck', this original physical theatre production looks at the themes of feminism, gender and identity. Using innovative, visceral movement and dance, original vocal and piano music, and a combination of old and new text, including real-life accounts of gender discrimination, this production is a unique theatrical experience that will leave you wanting more.
The production was performed as a work-in-progress at the Rag Factory off Brick Lane in London in June. Trip The Light were one of 9 out of 120 applicants to be selected to be part of their April – July season.
A note from the director: “It’s so exciting to look at a classic German text, which is essentially about the deteriorating mental health of an ex-soldier, and re-imagine it into an intriguing visual and aural score but with the focus shifted to the central female character, Marie. Marie is as misunderstood and put upon in the play as the titled character, but she never has the opportunity to voice her desires unlike the male characters. The Sun Shining On Her Hands gives Marie that space, that freedom, to communicate what she longs too and to tell her side of the story. It’s very exciting and important to give women a voice, and the integration of real-life stories add a relevant depth for a modern audience.”
